The spider web shown above is contains an example of predation. Not easily seen in the photo, however, there is a spider feeding upon its prey towards the top of the spider web. This is predation. Predation is when a predator (the hunting animal) feeds upon its prey (the hunted animal). In this case the spider (predator) has caught some sort of insect (prey) in its web and is now feeding upon it.
