I saw these two cuties engulfed in an epic battle a couple of weeks ago. It looked like the spider was only a couple of minutes away from a nice snack but when I came back a little while later the wasp was gone. I guess it must have fallen from the web. The spider wasn’t hurt in any way and had soon spun a new web. A somewhat cool picture if I may so myself.
It’s been ages since I last posted here. I have nothing to blame but myself but there seems to be little or none time to spare at the end of the day. Both spring and summer has come and gone since my last words and I really don’t want it to go that far until my next post.
Today I’d like you to meet a little dragonfly that I met during the vacation.
I hope that the pictures below aren’t too scary to look at or, perhaps that no people with arachnophobia sees the post. The pictures were taken last summer at Nørre Rubjerg in north Jutland, Denmark. I don’t know if last year was especially good for spiders but I saw lots and lots of them. Some small, some really big ones. More will come but the spider below starts us off. As you can see he/she has just caught a fly in its web and is about to have a snack.
Last summer we visited Amsterdam for almost an entire week. I had a lot of time on my own with Jr and spent a couple of hours on one of those days at the wonderful botanical garden of Amsterdam called De Hortus. I liked it all, especially walking in the cool shade under the trees but, to my one year old, nothing whatsoever could compete with the huge and beautiful butterflies in one of the greenhouses.
