Dramatically, a second bee that must also have got trapped in the house then comes crashing in, falls on its back and thrashes around a bit. As the second bee flails around on its back, it looks in one frame as if it stings the spider.
In fact, what one can see is the rear leg of the bee which happens to line up with the tip of the abdomen for a moment. It is too long and thick for a bee sting. The spider runs away, and the bees break free (as bumblebees usually do from spider’s webs).

This is amazing! I was just wondering the other day if insects that live in drone colonies (like ants) think about each other as individuals, if they think or care about one another, or if they just see each other as expendable units all serving a queen. (I know, I'm weird like that.)
What a great time to post this vid!
