Nice and warm day - just the right time to go and see what happens in the insect kingdom.
A lot of action today and this is the best I got.
Seems that although the crab spider was yellow on a green-white plant it could still catch lunch!

Great nature shot with amazing details and razor sharp focus. outstanding colors and the POV is exceptional!

Beautiful colorful macro Shir.
Wonderful details and pose of the spider.
Sharpness and clarity are excellent.
It seems that there is a small fly underneath the prey of the spider that does try to steal some food by taking a bite to.
Very well done. Best regards, Harry
