Natura Mirabilis – Panel No. 20

This photo (120 x 80 cm) is located at Place des Marroniers.

The banks of the Dive to the north-east of Oiron, on the borders of Vienne, are home to a multiplicity of insects. Apart from the numerous odonates, from the dragonfly to the damselfly, going round a bush we come acrossdifferent species of spiders like this wasp spider. With its mix of patterns and colors, this spider can deceive its potential prey, but that is not enough to catch them. It adds real know-how to weave a canvas, a true architectural masterpiece.
