Gladiators - the Approach

By teocali
A loud buzzing alerted me to a tiny drama unfolding in the corner of the kitchen skylight. A relatively small spider had caught a rather large wasp in its web.
This is the first in a series of 5 uploads, showing how the spider sets about entrapment. Armed with a sting and the net these two insects reminded me of a pair of gladiators!
