Scientists have been baffled by this tiny spider's strange "silkhenge" web structures.
Researchers had no idea what was making the unique webs until the minute orange spider hatched from an egg next to them.
It seems the spider species - as yet unidentified - makes a central tower on a tree trunk and forms a circular fence around the outside.
At the base of the tower, the spider lays its eggs - and a team of six experts only realised this when one hatched and appeared from the bottom.
Wildlife photographer Jeff Cremer led an eight-day-long expedition in the Tambopata National Reserve in Peru where they found the webs on a trail lined by cecropia trees.
