hello has all.
once again the two same protagonists, but seen under an angle different.
a believing that the spider needed to bite its prey has several places because it did not stop turning over the latter.
accentuated photograph and very slightly crossed on the left, catch with the flash with diffuser house.
if you wish infos on these two predatory defer to the first photo of the series.

wauw, just like a horror Laurent,
a marvelous photo, good details and yes the pov is good and the spider has a good diner, thanks for sharing, have a good day.
gr. jaap

Very nice capture.
Excellent composition and POV.

Strange the crab spider doesn't have the color of its flower. Maybe it moved there quite recently.



Hola Laurent.
Una imagen con una nitidez fabulosa.
Se captan muy bien los detalles de esta pequeña tragedia...
Un cordial saludo, JL.

Another powerful scene from the drama of life, Laurent.
Very sharp focus, colours and composition.
The poor victim is now totally over-powered.

Bonjour Laurent,
Another nice shot in you crab spider series and I think this is just as good as the previous, all th qualities are still there but the spider and damselfly have moved.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

Woooow - spectacular!
Hi Laurent, I love this shot, the colours are fantastic, also the sharpness.
You are lucky to see such a moment, but it's a poor damselfly, no long life ;-(
Bye and greetings

a well-captured scene - always very attractive: a crab spider together with its prey. Details, colours and light are pretty good as is the general composition of the picture.
Best wishes, Peter

Bonjour Laurent,
Sur TN j'ai appris à connaître cette araignée-crabe, et je dois dire qu'elle semble vraiment vorace, s'attaquant à des proies bien plus grandes qu'elles. Encore un cliché impressionnant de ta part.
Merci et bonne journée

Bonjour Laurent,
I see you caught one of those spiders too, and not only that you captured it with some prey. They quite good hunters and ambush their targets very well. Great shot, the POV is excellent. Great details and colors.
