    6 wheeler versus 8 wheeler confrontation

    They met on a flower and neither would give way.

    6 wheeler versus 8 wheeler confrontation

    Armour plated beetle (Oedemera nobilis) versus fierce killer Crab Spider (Misumena vatia).

    Place your bets on the result now!

    Isn't this like putting a cannibal and a vegetarian in a locked room, giving both a knife and fork and asking who's going live longest?

    And the result was:

    6 wheeler versus 8 wheeler confrontation

    When you are called 'nobilis' you don't step aside for some upstart oik of a spider; even if they do have poison fangs.

    The beetle just kept on walking in a straight line.

    But like most confrontations, it was pointless because the beetle had reached 'the end of the road' on that flower anyway!

    Come on, best two out of three, even if you have to use a ringer.
