Thread subject: :: Spider, tiny flies and behavioural question

Posted by lynkos on 25-07-2005 17:34

I'd be interested to have your comments on this picture I took some weeks ago of a Thomisus onustus spider feasting on a bee. But what interests me most are the small flies in attendance. I'd be interested to know what they are and especially what they are doing in what would seem to be a thoroughly uncomfortable position! Thanks in advance, Sarah
