Watching spiders Hunt in Kilome

image

There’s this affinity between nature & water. It’s got a way of attracting just as light does. So I realised that as water collected and it warmed up ALL landing areas around the water were quickly covered with spider webbings, and sooner or later something will seek a landing place other than on the water surface.

It didn’t take long and as soon as this fly started spinning the web while trying to free itself – this spider quickly moved in injecting a bite.

Then quickly went over its victim setting more web over its upper body from a duct under its abdomen

Then it moved away as it watched the fly entangle its weakened body into a white mass.
