A REAL Weird Wonderful Web!

Well this one I simply HAD to post! This is a news story from Texas about a REAL Weird Wonderful Web.
A massive web was found in Lake Tawakoni State Park in Texas. This enormous spider web "blankets several trees, shrubs and the ground along a 200-yard stretch of trail in a North Texas park".
Donna Garde, superintendent of the park said "At first, it was so white it looked like fairyland. Now it's filled with so many mosquitoes that it's turned a little brown. There are times you can literally hear the screech of millions of mosquitoes caught in those webs."
Eww, that just makes me think of the original 1958 version of the film The Fly.
The classic scene (at the end I think? Oops, spoiler) when you see a fly on a spider's web and you can hear a tiny, squeaky, pleading voice crying: "Help me, help me!", then the camera zooms in for us to see that the voice is coming from a tiny little human head on a fly's body.
