Wow, Crazy Bee-Eating Spider!

Spider and hapless bee, enmeshed alive in spider silk, all in a blink of an eye, as she spun the bee round and round, coating it in the toughest netting to return tonight for a living feast.  She set a huge, strong web right next to a patch of blooming ice plant and was reeling in bee after bee in a steady wagon train of future meals.  You would think she'd get tired of wrapping bees after a while but she never tired and never wavered.  As for those mounds on her back?  I'm not sure but perhaps they're eggs for future generation of spiders?  Yikes.
