While the giant spider-web in Aitoliko, Greece, might look freaky, the phenomenon is not at all harmful for humans, animals in the region, or the local flora.
One of the largest spiderwebs ever witnessed was spun across a lagoon in the Greek town of Aitoliko.
The cloudy web stretches over an abandoned boat, trees and rows of vegetation in photographs published to Facebook by user Giannis Giannakopoulos.
More yummy gnats mean more Tetragnatha spiders, according to Maria Chatzaki, a biology professor at Greece's Democritus University of Thrace.
"These spiders are not unsafe for humans and will not cause any damage to the area's flora", she told Greek outlet Newsit. "They mate, they reproduce and provide a whole new generation".
European leaders pour scorn on British PM's Brexit plan
It has been true for some time that France and Germany are the strongest voices for a firm stance toward Britain. If May fell, selection of a new party leader would delay already tight Brexit negotiations.

Chatzaki noted that it was a seasonal phenomenon that occurred mainly at the end of the summer and early autumn and arose from a "population explosion".
It's thought the region's high temperatures and an increase in the mosquito population provided the ideal conditions for the creepy-crawlies. And once the temperatures drop, the gnat population will die off and so will the spiders, leaving the people of Aitoliko to reclaim their beaches.
"It's the simple prey-predator phenomenon", Pergantis told the network.
The webbing is a normal occurrence and poses no danger whatsoever to humans, although the sight may look frightening to some.
