That’s the wonder of the web!

Gazette photographer Dave Satchel, of Boxmoor, Hemel Hempstead, was watching a spider capture a wasp in its web when another arrived and attached itself to the captive wasp.

Dave said: “ It was difficult do work out what happened after that. The late-arriving wasp and the spider appeared to be fighting each other.

“On the other hand the second wasp might just have been trying to eat the captive one and the spider was just trying to keep him off his dinner.”
