Making mistakes is a part of life for people and animals alike, but some flubs have much deadlier consequences than others.
Take the fishing spider, for example. Instead of catching prey in a web, it usually sits right at the edge of a body of water, then attacks when it detects ripples from movement. While it is mostly seen as a predator, it can become the victim of an attack if it picks the wrong spot, like this unfortunate creature.
When this spider walked onto the top of a Washington beekeeper’s hive to presumably stalk its prey, it likely realized that making a sudden movement was the worst thing it could have possibly done.
What a horrible way to die.
When it comes to protecting their queen, bees don’t mess around. Sorry, spider, but you were really asking for it by invading their colony.
