[32] In some species males mate with newly molted females, which are too weak to be dangerous to the males.

Spiders that create this type of web pull the line taut by keeping the slack silk underneath them until an insect hits the line. A praying mantis or bird intending to eat the spider must therefore do so in every time period simultaneously.
