Last southern spring, big amounts of wild daisies gorws in countrysisde and huge number of red black strange insects feed on its nectar and a good number of the flowers were inhabited by white crab spiders, difficult to see them by it colours but not hard to find them because they made its house bending some petals with web silk.

Hola Hernán,
Pero que bien manejas ese macro casero!
Es muy buena la intensidad del color utilizado, sin llegar a quemarse por ningún lado.
La textura de la parte amarilla de la flor es fascinante, así como los brillos y reflejos en la superficie de la presa.
Buen trabajo y gracias por compartirlo.
Un gran saludo,

AH! IMpressionnat comme toujours, magnifique macro tellement naturelle.

Hola Hernán!
Excelente captura, como aliás é comum de sua parte! Mui buenas colores! Nitidez fantástica!

Hi Hernan,
I see very good detail/exposure, great use of ambient light without use of flash..Good POV too, I can see this crab spiders eyes, and that's important ;)
Well done!

Hi Hernan,
Splendid action shot with nice colours and sharpness. The crab spiders are masters in ambushing their prey and I too have a few shots of their actions. Superb lighting here and I like your POV to portray this scene. Very nicely composed. Kudos.
