Fatal Attraction

I discovered yellow spiders hiding among the the thistles.  I assumed they were waiting for unsuspecting prey.  I took some photos, downloaded them to my computer and posted them to this blog under the title Dangerously Alluring Beauty.

Several hours later, I went back to check on them. I was right! This is the same thistle and spider from the previous post.

As you can see, a small bee, buzzing from flower to flower, attracted by the thistle, received an instant invitation to lunch.

The image on the right is the same scene from a different angle.

I wish I had hung around long enough to catch the action live.  However, it just so happens, when I finished photographing this carnage, I noticed a similar yellow spider, poised with arms open wide, waiting for a its meal on a yellow flower. Then a bug came along. I started snapping pictures. The bug walked around the flower until it finally came face to face with the spider…and then…

You’ll have to watch for those images in a future post to see how it turned out.
