We’ve seen awe-inspiring photos of different natural phenomena: lunar fog bow, Aurora Borealis, storms… But a 1,000-feet long spider web blanketing a large part of a town? I’ve never seen anything like it, but photographer Alexandros Maragos witnessed it and managed to capture it in a series of unbelievable photos.

The 1,000 feet long spider web covered Aitoliko town in Western Greece. “The web has been built by thousands [of] spiders of the Tetragnatha genus,” Alexandros writes on his blog. The web is so huge that it covered up “large parts of the beach, trees, bushes and even, animals,” the photographer explains. And indeed, you can see all this in his photos covered with a thick layer of spider web.

If someone described this to me, I would find it hard to believe. But the photos are here as a proof, and while it’s scary, it’s incredible at the same time. Take a look at more photos below, and make sure to check out Alexandros’ work on his website, Facebook, Instagram, and Flickr. You can also follow him on Twitter and subscribe to his YouTube and Vimeo channel.

    You sure it’s made by spiders? Normally these giant spread webs are made by caterpillars.

    We have a similar event in November here in Central Florida, but I’m told that the webbing is created by a caterpillar.
