Spider vs. Wheel Bug: Battle of the Predators

Not that there was much battle about it. Charlotte won, "hands" down! The wheel bug was still alive and literally kicking when I took this photo, but she didn't last long.

Charlotte feasted on her for at least 24 hours, after moving her back to the center of the web.

The interlocking strands of the web of life fascinate me, especially when I get to observe them firsthand...and literally. Why would anyone simply kill off any bugs and spiders they see, rather than get to watch all of this real-life drama right under their nose?
