I found this quite interesting. It looks as if they've been hung up on a clothes line to dry.

Did you take this?

If so are they dead?
Looks like they are in a cobweb.

Yes I did take it and no, they weren't dead although they would seem to be at first glance. They lie(or hang) still for about ten minutes and start kicking their legs frantically for a minute and they "play dead" again. Really weird. It did look like a spider web but the odd thing was that there was only one long strand and no others that crossed it over it.

Thanks Mark. It was an interesting situation, it's gone now so I can only wonder if they were eaten by a spider or something. I'm still trying to figure out how to got to be lined up like that.

I dunno the onlyw ay I can picture it is from thoes movies like a bugs life where the bugs are talking to each other.

So I picture it like they are flying then one bug goes "hey look a string"
then the other bug "yay lets hang on it"..... weeeeeeeee

Or something like that lol :roll:
