    I guess the spider is the victim :? .

    Well spotted moment, BTW.

    Cheers..

    ditto. The spider doesn’t look like the aggressor, the front legs looks retracted back, and off the ground.

    Well spotted!

    Cheers,

    Thank you Allan and PT Lee. I was caught by surprise when this flying insect suddenly dive to the ground and started dragging this spider. It was a wonder that this insect can drag the spider quite speedily. I hope someone can ID the insect here.

    That’s a wasp right? It’s probably feeding the spider to its young just like it does to the cat at CY’s post. Great moment captured.

    its a different wasp.

    The paper wasp I took will cut the prey to pieces and bring it back.

    The one in this pic paralyzes the prey, and I think lay the larvae near them so they have fresh meat to eat.

    Thank you Wei Luen and Chuanye. From what I gather in the internet, I think this is a specie of Spider Wasp. These specie usually hunt down spiders.

    great moment Richard. The spider must be quite shell-shocked.

    Poor Spider, it will be a living Prey.
