I think this ?wasp hit a bit of a spider web, and then landed to clean it off.

Pity that the spider didn't get it

It was interesting to watch - the wasp kind of lightly touched it with all legs and sprang off it. Then flew and perched to clean it off legs. It was as though its toe claws are spider web proof!
