Symbiosis

Whitetail buck cradles a spider between its antlers.

Both of these animals benefit from this chance relationship, the buck presumably picked up the silky hitchhiker by walking though its web somewhere down the line, and the spider saw no reason to leave – The only thing better than hunting via stationary net is by way of a mobile one.

For this reason I’d say the weaver is getting the better end of this deal, but I’m sure the buck is experiencing at least a slight drop in the amount of pests he needs to swat away each day.

This relationship ends when the whitetail sheds its antlers, but until then each may reap the rewards of this lucky accident.
