Black widow wraps bee.Yesterday, when Amber and I got home from the beach, we found that a bee had just flown into a spiderweb in her kitchen window. As it struggled, a black widow crawled out of its nest in the corner of the window, cautiously made its way over the to bee, and then injected it with venom repeatedly. When the bee had stopped struggling, the spider wrapped it up and dragged it off to the nest, presumably to serve as a later meal.
