Nature is harsh.
While having merienda with Boa (pasta cooked by yours truly), I saw my brother intently staring at something just outside the screen door that leads to our kennel.
Boa and I were looking at him curiously for a full 5 minutes before he explained what he was doing outside.
He was apparently watching a very intense fight between a small house spider and an ant that was caught in its web.
It's a Nat-Geo Photo Op!!!!
Grabbed my cam, set it on super-macro and handed the camera to him.
It was a vicious battle with the ant putting up a fight:
But it was a home-court advantage for Spidey. It's kinda like watching Shelob and Frodo go at it, only in miniature. Spidey wrapped the ant inside the web and paralyzed it with a bite or two before consuming it. Yeech:
Poor ant. I wondered out loud how did the ant got there and he gleefully answered, 'I placed it there!'
Nature is harsh, but people can be really blood-thirsty. Tsk.
