In the Zoo

It’s amazing how much is going on in the natural world. There is a constant life and death tussle. Yesterday, I watched a tiny spider leap on a tiny fly. In the blink of an eye, it leaped onto the fly and off again. Then it wandered away, licking its chops. I’m not sure if the fly was already dead, and the spider didn’t get anything, or if the fly, in a microsecond, ripped a chunk off it and ate it.

This morning I watched a different, bigger, spider (still no more than 3mm long), munching on a fly.
