THE DEADLY LURE OF KARVI

Attracted to the sweet nectar of the Karvi flower, a stingless bee becomes the meal of a female crab spider lurking around the flower. While the killer lady is about to begin her meal, a male crab spider takes advantage of the situation and tries to copulate with her lest she makes a meal of her lover too.
