Pam's Webs


While I was away Pam put up one picture of some spiders webs she had taken in the garden. I was looking through her pictures and noticed these two of almost "perfect" webs, that I though were well worth another look. I wonder if these patterns are related to the mysterious Fibonacci numbers, any mathematicians out there could let me know!

These are absolutely stunning! Almost unreal...
I wonder if the fishermen stole the idea for their nets from spiders ;-)

Look at the BBC website for R4 "In Our Time". The programme 2 weeks ago was about the Fibonacci series and the website gives a range of mind-boggling links.
