Hello All, hope everyone is well.
I was just watching my pond and saw the strangest sight.
A bee had slipped off a leaf into the water and was trying to get back on it, when all the pond skaters in the pond started pouncing on it. Every time it tried to get out they engulfed it and dragged it back into the water. It kept shaking them off and they kept clambering back on it. Eventually there were about eight on it and held it there until it stopped struggling.
It turns out it isn't such a strange event, I just wikipedied it and there's actually a picture of them doing this. I never knew they did this. They are cannibals too! Strange what one learns. They always seemed like cute little carefree things.
