Dinner for Shelob

A few hornets were building a nest up in the corner by the front door. I managed to snag one of them before shooing them away and dropped it onto Shelob's web.

I was quite impressed with how fast she ran down to the trapped hornet and wrapped it up in a cocoon of silk. Even more surprising is that she actually wraps it up with a sheet of silk, not just individual strands.

She put on a pretty impressive show. I'll have to catch more bugs and try to get a movie of the action.
