The waiting was paid off for this Flower Spider. The skipper was sucking dry under the strong grip. This is the third time I captured such scene.

Impressive action shot of a predator Spider with its catch of a Skipper, JC.
Superb macro that not only depicts a phenomenon of nature but also shows the typical settings in which such actions keep on taking place and are only occasionally captured like in your picture.
The colours are also attractive in this composition.
