Spring has sprung and action is heating up in the garden! A careful examination of the budding flowers and the grasses in the flower beds reveals a world of bug eat bug. This is what I have seen in my seemingly tranquil garden. Its brutal! Be prepared! And it’s amazing what big prey these tiny spiders will attack!
And then the flying ants arrived and I started cheering the spider!
I very rarely interfere but this time my heart went out to the struggle mimic bee!
And then after all that violence, a truce, peace!

Awesome! The battle of the Hyacinth, spider wins and gets a good meal to boot. 🙂
They seem to have big appetites and no fear!

And it’s hard not to try and intervene sometimes!
