Struggling Bug

Yesterday we saw a bug that was stuck in a spider web near a window. The bug was a medium sized one and was struggling very hard to get loose. Even so, he couldn’t get out for a long time. He was using his wings and legs, and he actually looked kind of funny because the light rendered the web invisible. Well, the bug finally got out and we were quite satisfied to see it get free of  the web.

It’s only the second time we’ve seen a bug escape from a spider’s web before they get completely tangled up or the spider gets them. We watched this bug for a long time before we thought to film it. If you watch the video, you are seeing the very end of the struggle and the bug’s eventual freedom.

Hope you like it. The camera had a bit of a hard time focusing on the small bug, so the quality is not . . . quality 🙂 Sorry about that.
