p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · A very hungry wasp


Not seen this before- this worker common wasp flew straight at a juvenile orbweb spider (Araneus diadematus) sitting in it's web, killed it and flew off with it. Just managed one shot of the action

Thanks for the comments.
I have seen wasps looking for trapped insects in webs (damsel flies also do this) but not seen one take out the owner before. I do know the wasps are desperate for protein at this time of year to feed the grubs.
