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! [photoblog.com]
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!
