A dinner guest

  1. 1. When you are invited to dinner in the animal kingdom,<br />make sure you aren’t part of the menu.<br />A Dinner Guest<br />
  2. 2. The other day, I went out into the garden to see what I could find to photograph. <br />The Shasta Daisies were just coming into season, and with their bright white flowers with orange centers, I decided to start there.<br />
  3. 3. I spied a bee sitting on the edge of one of the flowers. "Cool", I thought, "an opportunity!"<br />
  4. 4. Looking closer I found that the bee had become an unwilling dinner guest at the table set by a white spider.<br />
  5. 5. The bee had obviously put up a fight as she had a broken wing and looked pretty beat up.<br />
  6. 6. The spider didn't waste any time biting down into the bee, sucking out its juices. It turned the hapless bee several times to get the most of its meal.<br />
  7. 7. Finishing up, the spider took a moment to let the meal settle, and then...<br />
  8. 8. she carried the carcass to the edge of the blossom and pitched it over the edge!<br />
  9. 9. Having cleared the table, so to speak...<br />
  10. 10. done with the dishes, as it were..<br />
  11. 11. She made herself comfortable to wait for the next unsuspecting meal to buzz by.<br />
  12. 12. A fascinating evening, just outside the kitchen door.<br />
