A few days ago, we were outside in our backyard when my dad got annoyed at some flies bothering our fig tree. So he rolled up a newspaper and smacked a few fig leaves to stun the flies, then proceeded to scoop one poor fly up with the newspaper. With one quick movement, he tossed the fly against this spider’s net, where it met its fate. Here you see the spider vigorously spinning a web around its prey. So you see, it was a peace offering to the spider…but the sun only lasted for the rest of the day. The next day it was pouring rain. I guess the fly wasn’t big enough.
