Been a while since we did a photo post...

Spider vs Wasp:

In the Clutches... or why the spider loses.

A Brown and Yellow Paper Wasp
- My best guess - Vespidae, Paper Wasp, (Polistes Bellicosus) -
fighting with what I believe is a Tropical Orbweaver - (Eriophora Ravilla).

It ended badly for the spider that put up a valiant struggle.

Maneuvering for the final strike
