The predatory bug Podisus maculiventrus attacks the caterpillar Manduca sexta (tobacco hornworm). Long version available in 4k video. You see how the bug very carefully approaches the caterpillar, since it has to attach its mouthparts firmly into the body before it escapes. The first attach fails,and the caterpillar escapes, but the second attack is successfull.

Below you can see an interactive view of the adult sheep tick, Ixodus ricinus.
