Welcome To My Web…
Said the spider to the butterfly.
This scene was spotted by some fellow walkers at the start of last Sunday’s walk. What I found most amazing about this scene wasn’t the fact that the spider was making easy work of the butterfly, but the fact that the butterfly seemed to have been trapped by a single thread of silk. Highlighting just how strong spiders web is.
From the front end of the spider, its fangs were quite visible. It was a photo I drew the line at getting as it meant getting between the spider and the hedge. I’m just not that brave and don’t think I ever will be!
My Sunday Photo
A minimal amount of web seemed to have captured this butterfly good and proper.
I am still seeing quite a few red admiral butterflies (no others) when I’m out walking the dogs. They are noticeably slower now which may have contributed to its demise.
Are you still seeing butterflies where you are?
