Sparrow & Spider

I was standing at the kitchen window on Saturday morning, looking at a spider on its web at the window.

Outside, on a fence, a little sparrow was perched.

It must have spotted me observing the spider, because suddenly it flew over and hovered at the web, its wings flapping franticly, about four feet from me.

The small bird proceeded to take aim and consumed the spider at once, whilst hovering.

Then it flew back to its perch; a wonderful sight and quite extraordinary.
