We tend to choose a natural product if we had an option of choosing it over something that is human-made. This goes without having second thoughts. Can we differentiate between the two?

Rapid urbanisation has destroyed a lot of natural habitat and a big increment in concrete jungles. Few species, however, did get used to the new conditions and thrived in it. The golden orb weaver is one such species which is reproducing at a higher pace. They thank the larger cities for this.
The colourful rose
