A WASP DRAGGING A SPIDER

A fantastic image after a fight of a Spider Wasp and a Tarantula Spider,when the wasp dragged the spider to its nest.The fight was going on for about 10 minutes when the wasp tranquilized the spider and dragged him to her nest.I came across the incidence recently in Western Ghats of India on a trek.A very rare event to remember for a life time.
