One Predator Falls Prey to Another

A Daring Jumping Spider (Phidippus audax) makes a meal of what appears to be a Common Baskettail (Epitheca cynodura).
I didn't want to get close enough to disturb the feeding spider, so I can't be 100% sure of the dragonfly ID.

Rather fitting. You see, Owensboro has its annual "International BBQ Festival" on this weekend every year.

Mutton anyone?

It is fitting -- I had BBQ for lunch today.

Of course, you must understand that in eastern NC barbecue is a noun, not a verb. The word refers to chopped or pulled pork with a tangy vinegar-based sauce. Yummy.

If you ask anyone in these parts if they'd like some barbecue and then you go pulling out beef that you cooked on the grill -- well, let's just say they'd know you weren't from around here :)

Exactly Swamp... if your in the Big O.. going to eat BBQ is MUTTON. If you see someone order something besides mutton, you know they are visitors. Dumb ones.

Hey Brat! I've never had mutton...perhaps I will have to plan a trip to KY and experience it.
