Eater Scarab Beetle (two photos)
spider Metepeira species
I watched this beetle fly into a Desert Orb Weaver's web.
immediately ran over to the beetle but I don't think it
with what it found. I have a feeling it will
probably cut it loose and
try to fix what was left of its nice little orb web.

"What a horrible predicament this is!" These scarabs do just
what their common name implies - eat ants. © Carol Davis
