Double decker feast.

By tonyb73  
This was almost as good as watching any wildlife on TV. The fly had already flown into the web and been bitten by the spider, whilst the spider retreated and waited for it's venom to take effect, this small beetle (I think its a small Cardinal beetle but not 100% sure) decided to nip in for a free meal and obviously didn't see the spider which was about 2 inches away. Needless to say it wasnt happy about sharing its meal and crept up and ate the beetle too. Moral of the story, don't try and pinch a spiders meal, it won't like it.
