Yesterday morning I witnessed this episode of Nature at it finest.
I was taking a picture of this spider in it web all curled and bunched up resting. I noticed a dragonfly a little beside and took a shot of it. The dragonfly flew into the web. Thats when all hell broke loose. The spider raced and wrestled with the dragonfly briefly. Then left it alone for about 5 minutes. The spider tediously checked and mended its web. The dragonfly would flutter every now and then. Then the spider came back and finished the dragonfly.
In a period of about fifteen minutes, I manged to get about 200 shots of these two. There are shots that are blurred because of the struggling.
I thinks it's a conspiracy, I didn't know the mosquitos have sided with spiders to help with their battle against the dragonflies.
