Waiter! There’s a fly in my soup!

Nature can be both amazing and wicked and I witnessed this yesterday at Ballannette Wetlands in the Isle of Man. I noticed a few large black insects on the water generating a centrifuge with the sole purpose of pulling their prey straight into their grasp. An ingenious plan! The smaller critters had no escape as the whirligig became wider and more and more were forced into the danger zone. Nature at it’s best and most cruellest!
