[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Perhaps the best of the series. Needed the fast speed because the flower was moving in breeze. It seems the spiders hide beneath the flowers and sneak over the petal edge when the bee is feeding. In both instances that I saw the spider had caught the bee in the same place and seemed to be able to paralyze it. I have no idea how it does that' but the poor be does not move its wings.

Hello Geoffrey,
An impressive capture displaying excellent detail of spider, bee and the bright yellow flower. I like the composition and your choice of an f/14 aperture resulted in wonderful DOF. Focus is sharp and colors appear true and natural. Well done!!
