Garden spider mummifies a Japanese beetle
« on: August 20, 2007, 12:30:17 PM »
Well,  I've finally joined the video age.   Here is my first attempt at a video and my YouTube debut.   Still need to work on my editing skills.


Here is a black & yellow garden spider that my son and I keep feeding Japanese beetles.   This is a short clip of the spider mummifying the beetle.

Robo, your subject line caught my eye, lol.  Good first attempt at joining the video age, yeah!!!  Those garden spiders are simply amazing with their talent for spinning the prey around and around, mummifying!!!  Keep on bringing on the videos, we all love them.  Have a wonderful day, great life.  Cindi
