Last night, I took the lid off the fruit fly trap beside her web, and this time a half-dozen flies were caught.
The spider leapt into action, took two steps and stood there, frozen, confused maybe by the signals coming from all sides. She thought about it for a few minutes, then went slowly over to the nearest fly, grabbed it and wrapped it up.
Then she left her dinner hanging, and went for the next, brought it back and wrapped it with the first. Rinse and repeat: she caught all 6 fruit flies and bundled them together before she settled down to eat.
|Big meal. The red colouring is fruit fly eyes; 12 of them.|
So that question is answered.
