It's A Jungle Out There

Come Into My Parlour
Said The Spider To The Bee

If you look very closely you will see one of those little dramas lived out in the garden every day, which mostly go unnoticed.

That hapless bee has become supper for that small white spider which given it's size obviously packs quite a punch to take out a bee on the fly.

The spider sits ever so still amongst the flowers with pincher's at the ready, and should a bee not be paying attention, the next thing you know he has become lunch.

I took this picture yesterday while tending to my flowers, or more accurately weeds.

I would be happier if this able hunter developed a liking for mosquito's and left the helpful honey bees alone, but I guess everyone has to earn a living someho
