Insect Wars; I captured on Camera

No Friggin' kiddin! Kids panicked on back porch as there was a mean, ugly, huge red wasp. They run from the porch, flinching as he moves and flitters around. SUDDENLY? He stings the big @$$ spider that made a home along the stained ceiling to our porch. Spider dies, kids come in excited. Apparently, this wasp is carrying this spider and heading to his nest. But, where oh where is the nest? Well, we watched (I captured via camera) and he carried, dragged and otherwise moved that big @$$ spider all the way to a airflow hole in the rock wall of the house. Fart Knocker, wasp. I let him be tonight with his big kill and dinner for the pubating youngins' and all. But, come tomorrow? There will only be a dead wasp with fragments of a half eaten spider in that hole. Serving notice to all other RED Wasps and other, flying, stinging creatures. "Say my little friend." It's called WASP FREEZE and it's here to party with YOU! Still, the pics are cool. And, I DO love Mother Nature. So, check this out: This is Mr. Red Wasp carry/dragging Mr. Big Fat Meaty Spider towards his den.... So here, he got a little lost. Put the spider down. Went looking around to find his hole/nest on our porch.... Here he has figured out and remembered where his nest is.... Wait, no. That's the happy dog who doesn't have a care about the wasp OR the spider. HERE, is the wasp whom has finally found his bearings -- I thought they had built in GPS? Hmmpft. Anyhoo. Now it is a question of, "Will it fit?" Un-Freakin-Believable. Fat spider fit in the hole.... Good huntin my red man. Enjoy your last meal; for tomorrow will be your Green Mile. :-D

Holy Cow! That is one honkin' big wasp! He beats my black widow in the kitchen window in SPADES! Fantastic "time-lapse" photography, too. Isn't it sad how the big ol' spider's legs curled all up and made him look kinda like a fat mushroom...but kudos to the wasp for catching such a tasty feast for his "last meal"...I figure by now he's walked that long green Mile...

I really hate wasps. They are so aggressive. I've never seen one kill a spider and drag it off to it's house for dinner though. That's kinda cool. And creepy.

bbrrrrr..... (that's a shiver!)... I hate wasps! I hate it when BUGS/Wasps find a way to make their home in OUR homes! That was a cool series of pics! Kudos to you!
Every year, we have wasps that take up home on our patio by our bedroom french doors! EVERY single year! No matter, how many times we kill them and destroy their nests!
