How spiders make webs, video

This 20 November 2018 video shows a spider making its web.

Why do insects get stuck in webs, while the spider itself does not? Because not all of the web’s threads are sticky. There are sticky droplets on part of the threads, and the spider avoids these while moving around.

Herman Schoemaker in the Netherlands made this video.
