This time a bald-faced hornet gets all wrapped up. I am amazed at the number of insects this spider ingests. It is fascinating to watch him from the point where the insect is caught in the web, to where he is turned into a black ball of 'goo', and ingested.

    I wonder if there is a rising obesity rate amongst spiders! ☺ Good one, Susan

    Awesome shot! I was tempted to rescure a moth from a web the other night but decided nature must take its' course. Amazing how the spider gift wraps its' dinner. LOL

    Lesley....it goes from 'oh crap' (the insect), to 'it's a wrap' (the spider), to a blot with the tiny napkin, in about 3 hours.

    That's one big spider...I am so glad that a hornet got its just reward after one stung me 10 times on the side of my head and on my ear in 2002... I am amazed the hornet didn't sting the spider before it got made into a wrap sandwich.
