The watch spider at my front door has been killing bees and using the protein to lay eggs. Here is one sac she’s just finishing up.
200 eggs in there.
By the time I came back to figure out how to move the family, she had carried it away under the overhanging brickwork, and was hugging it with all eight legs and giving me the evil eye. Boy, can she ever stare. Now she has two sacs under there, and 5 layers of protective webwork just in case I don’t get the message. Yes, Ma’am, I do.
