The Spider and the Fly



35-55 myo Baltic amber, containing a spider, 2 flies, and an assortment of plant material. If you look real close, you can see the spider’s fangs. I like to think he was about to dine on a juicy fly, but the reality is that this is probably not a predation event, they were likely just captured in proximity to each other.
