    1. Barb, in the beginning, I thought that a bee(or a wasp) killed that spider! Wrong!

  4. Oh, I know what you mean! Sometimes I want to just look the other way ... but it's so fascinating! I've been reading a lot about dragonflies and damselflies lately, and they are incredible flyers and hunters. And they eat mosquitoes. Yay.

  10. I HATE crab spiders. They wait for unsuspecting, innocent bees to come to flowers and then wham! They kill them. I know it's just nature but it makes my heart hurt to see the poor little guys attacked this way. I always kill a crab spider. I suppose this is just as violent but I don't care. I will protect the bumblebee. :)
