creepy crawly in action

yesterday, i happened to come across a scene of life and death near my pond:
a dragonfly got caught in a spiderweb, and the spider who …”lived there” hurried out to feast.

powerful chelicers, biting into the dragonfly's head

it was already too late to rescue the dragonfly, but i got a chance to watch the rest of the incident closely.
truly fascinating!

i did record a video as well, but i’ll wait until i find an easy-to-use (and ideally free/open source) video-editing software…
