Something fell off the table and when I stooped down to pick it up I found a real life fight for survival taking place before my very eyes.
A beetle had wandered unwittingly into the trap of a spider. The spider, a fraction of the size of the beetle, was valiantly trying to secure its dinner, while the beetle clawed and scrambled to get away.
We were sure the beetle was done for, but it was more powerful than we thought. Although wounded, it got away from the web and we scooped it up gently and let it go outside.
