    In Yungas-Bolivia a wasp had just stung a spider...
    I scared the wasp up and it flew away, found the spider and prepared the camera..., 2min after it came back, landed 3m away from the spider and used the antenneas for sniffing it up. After it was absolutely sure the spider was completely paralysed, it even went around for finding the best "road" for transport, to a hole nearby where it would lay a egg on it.
    The spider is family Ctenidae, wandering spider, and looks like it belongs to the genus Phoneutria.
