|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|A somewhat optimistic spider with his intended lunch. No idea on the ID of either participant, but I thought this was an intersting study of daily life in the nettles.|
The damselfly was trying to get away from the spiders web and the spider kept trying to ensnare the damselfly with more web.
The eventual outcome was that the damselfly was wrapped up and prepared for lunch.
To give you a sense of scale, the spiders body was about 10mm long
Taken with a 13mm extension tube behind the 50mm lens

Hi Norman, nice shot, good composition. The Damselfly was an Azure Damselfly Coenagrion puella and the spider a Tetragnatha sp. an orb web spinner. Well done.
Very nicely captured norman, and will confirm pauls idents,
once the spider gets its fangs in then the end is certain and there are pitures here on TN of even much larger dragonflies being eaten by spiders not much larger than this one . TFS such a clear image.
