Caught one of my pet spiders grabbing this huge fly, havent seen a fly like this before. Its way bigger than the ususal blowie we have here. More like a wasp than a blowfly. The poor lil thing bottom right is the Male. Note the silk from the back legs!



better one of the male.

How on earth do the little spiders kill something so big?  They are truly amazing.  Great day. Cindi

They got some power full poison to battle the smaller and simpler anatomy of insects, not so affective on humans. Spiders are awesome, is the one that runs supper fast?

think you posted this in the wrong forum i think you ment to hit the sub forum.

Ah well, these things happen, but this spider moved so fast it was amazing. I would say .5 of a second to cover a foot. i was just looking at this huge fly and heading for the fly spray when WHAM out it popped. Didnt know it was even there. I try not to use fly spray coz I dont like to kill spiders.
