Predation

**Please excuse the fact that this post and the remaining posts after it do not have pictures to accompany the descriptions. When trying to upload the image I was told my blog had reached media capacity? I will do my best to describe the picture in my definition.**

This is a picture of a very large spider that decided to build its web across the pathway leading to my front door. Its hard to tell but its feeding on a fly. This is an example of predation – where a predator hunts or feeds on its prey. The spider’s act of predation involves its web trapping the fly and the spider immobilizing it with more web material. Then the spider feeds on its prey.
