This bigger one is hanging on its web waiting for prey. If you look closely there's a few little fly or some kind of insects already trapped on its web.
This huge beetle is prone to turning turtle. Pity the poor guy, I just can't help but assist them to get upright again which reminds me of the story about the guy who keeps throwing starfish back into the sea.
In that story, there is a season when there are thousands of starfish being washed ashore. This guy walks along the beach, picks up one and throws it back into the sea. Someone asked him why is he doing such a futile thing ? There are thousands of them and he surely will not be able to rescue all if that was his intention. To this, his response was, yes, there are thousands but at least there is the one that lives because I pick it up and throws it back into the sea... Just like Pi I suppose.
Sometimes, sometimes dealing with animals is easy. Their intentions are clear and there's no hidden agenda. Humans (well they appear to be) are another story. Full of hidden agendas, self importance and grandiose ambitions. I don't mind if they are smart, will even support them in their quest but those who thinks that they are smart, who delegates blame, demands respect (it is supposed to be earned) and talks without substance, pttthhhh.
That's why I love bugs I guess.
