An adult Dang's Cross Spider releasing bridge-line silk- Argiope dang ♀

An adult Arigope dang releasing bridge-line silk: The silk is released into the air and carried by the wind until it sticks to any surface (far from the spider), forming a "bridge" where the spider can use to start building a cobweb, or simply to escape deathtraps.

 

Most tiny web-building spiders will do this when there is wind movement.
