Nature's Place

Assassin at Work

I spy an Assassin.

Wandering about in the forest.

Tracked ‘im up the grass plant to panic in the hive.

Stabbed a wasp and carried her away.

And away.

And just when Assassin thought it was safe to stop the ants joined in the kill.

So off Assassin went again and didn’t stop till ants were way behind and wasp was drained of life.

This way and that, a little lost at times it seemed.

But never let go the precious hard won meal.

Skewered Wasp.

And the Assassin lived happily ever after. Until …

But that’s another story.
