How is it done?

Published by at 2:11 pm under General

In our garden there is a red maple which is about 10 feet from the back stairs. Earlier today, I noticed a horizontal spider web which connects the tree to the stairs and is about 10 feet above the ground. The working part of the web is a v shape near the maple (where the bugs are, I suppose), but it is held horizontal by a single(?) long strand running from the crotch of the V to a vertical part of the stair structure. How did the spider to it? Shoot a thread the fifteen feet like “spiderman”, carry it across on the ground and then pull it tight?
