Attack! Attack!

Synema globosum aka Red Crab spider

What impresses me the most is when Spiders attack! We all know very well how spiders are, but the non-house spiders are too creepy and they are dangerous hunters!
Last time I saw a live attack was with a bee, the attack was soo strange! []
This time I watched with a wasp! When it was landing in the rose, this spider jumped on it and bit on its thorax. The wasp moved fast but in about 3 seconds it stopped to move! It was clearly dead! The spider has so its meal!yummy!

      Marvelous how you managed to capture this dramatic scene, Ricky! How long do you observe insects before something like this have a lot of patience to wait for it!! Awesome set!
