Anomaly …

After the feast of butterflies, butterfly scales evident, appetite filled and unmoving for a while.

Along came a weevil, looking to sup on the butterfly bush nectar, the spider ignored.

Perhaps oblivious to the nature of the spider, weevil went exploring under her.

Or could that be a baby spider … I don’t think so. :-)

After the butterflies came and went this spider was seen with evidence of eating them, butterfly scales around its face.

Along came a weevil the spider ignored, perhaps no longer hungry enough to move. Or weevils don’t taste good to a spider.

I don’t think the spider thinks the weevil is its baby, or the weevil thinks the spider is its mother.

Just one of those things that happen in nature, apparent anomaly.
