In 2010, Pakistan faced one of the greatest floods ever. It affected an area equivalent to the size of England, claimed the lives of almost 2000 people and forced about 20 million people from their homes. It also drove millions of tiny arachnids into trees in order to escape the rising flood waters. Because of the scale of the flooding and the fact that the water has still not yet receded, the trees have become authentic cocoons of spider webs. The images show a rare phenomenon and a completely unexpected effect. As a possible consequence of the formation of these massive webs, the mosquito population has decreased. It is thought that mosquitoes get caught in the webs thus reducing the risk of malaria and benefiting the local people. Fortunately, it’s not all bad news for the people of Sindh!
