The Crab, The Bee And Three Flies

Goldenrod Spider Misumena vatia

This mighty female crab spider (Misumena vatia) grabs itself a nice bee for lunch and these three little freeloader flies want their piece of it as well.

    1. It was a tough one to get the balance right, mainly because of the spider being so pale and blowing it out, especially as I used flash on this, although well diffused. Then I had to try and get as much in focus as I could as I don’t do the stacking thing. Thank you Ted ๐Ÿ™‚
