Hi Russ, Yes, it is fantastic gift from nature. Splendid shot. Marvelous all these tiny worlds.
A lot of physics here surface tension, gravity, friction. I would add also some mathematics, the droplets on a spider's web form multiple elastic catenaries. (In physics and geometry, a catenary is the curve that an idealized hanging chain or cable assumes under its own weight when supported only at its ends).
Beautiful, well observed, nicely describe and captured.

Smile To emka: My favorite Catenary... ;-) the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, Missouri.

You are right, of course -- I had not considered the "hyperbolic cosine function!"

All my best,
