This morning when I walked outside there were patches or
wet web looking stuff ALL over the yard. It was very foggy and wet out.
What is that or is it just part of the dew?
Very likely, what you saw was water condensate appearing on the webs of
I'm not sure, but during fog, droplets of water will
form on spider webs, making them much more visible.
Perhaps that is what you observed.
