Semi Circle of Life

While puttering around on the patio the other day we discovered a grasshopper shell laying under the table.

Looking over and up just about a foot we discovered a spider web that had the fresh new grasshopper caught in the web.

The grasshopper was frantically trying to free itself while the black widow spider was doing her thing. We watched for a while, until the grasshopper finally stopped twitching.

Then we smashed them both with a shoe.
