Wasp vs Spider
"Maybe...." I said.
Then I saw the wasp.
We watched as the wasp flew in, grabbed the still feebly moving spider, and tried to pull it into a drainage hole in the concrete further down.
....and I shot this video of the wasp dragging the spider, much larger than itself, back up the nearly sheer concrete face and onto the path again. For some reason known only to itself, it insisted on having the spider in that exact place on the path.
Eventually it would lose the hole, drop the spider again, and quarter the area for 15 minutes trying to find the hole. We left in the middle of the drama.
