Spider attack

I always like to look over the water lilies for something interesting. Last Sunday I saw a spider on a white water lily.

There was also a honey bee gathering pollen in the flower. I wasn’t the only one who noticed the bee!

The spider got the bee on its back, but then retreated. I can only guess that the bee stung it or the spider couldn’t figure out how to dispatch the bee.

The lucky bee escaped and probably had a good tale to tell her sisters back at the hive.

The spider returned to the base of the lilly.
