Do bees bite?

After tentatively trying to subdue the bee

the spider tried to retreat but it appeared that the bee had one of its legs in its mouth and the spider had to struggle to get free. The bee then escaped from the web

and the spider went back to its packed lunch

Well captured series of "eat or be eaten" (or in this case bite or be bitten) playing off in nature! Thanks for sharing.
