Challenge has finished
In nature we often see examples of things suspended in midair, sometimes for protection, sometimes by accident. Show us what you've found suspended. It might be a spiderweb, a caterpillar hanging by a single thread, an insects' or a bird's nest Maybe it's an icicle or a stalactite, a plant growing in a precarious place; perhaps a vine or branch crossing a void to form a natural bridge. Where possible, your photo should be outside in the natural world. Macro and close-ups welcome. Size: 1,600px MAXIMUM on the entry's longer side.

This Ladybug appears to have been caught by a spiders bite while it was eating aphids. It's suspended on some web from it's leg and also it's body, from a strand that's not visible from this angle.
