Caption: Orb web of black and yellow garden spider (Argiope aurantia) droops, heavy with morning dew, in Ohio. Spiders spin webs to capture prey in their sticky strands. Some of the threads are non-sticky ''safety'' threads which the spider uses to navigate its way around the web . Some spiders eat their web each morning after a night of use.
