Thanks for the comments. Back in early August 2013 we found a nest in our side yard with three little blue eggs. They soon thatched.

We got to follow their early days.

Until one day they ventured out on their own.

Excellent Fred. See what an excellent nest material spider web makes!

Well, isn't spider web tougher than a piece of steel of the same size after all? Or was it a hoax/pseudoscience that was debunked?

Anyways, someone without 8 legs finally found a purpose for cobwebs, and that's good to know ; maybe some day I'll find what to do with the indecently large amounts of them I clean from my wife's family's cottage every year...
