[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [Spanish]
A new photo of my new series on daisies. They remember the strange insect of my previous photo? Some of their innumerable companions also fall imprisoned of predators, in special crab spiders , very common in daisies. It is possible to be known of his presence because they bend two or more petals and stick them with their web, doing a "bunker" , where waits for some off guard victim. The thinnest and small spider to the right is the male, who only watches the scene at a prudent distance.

Coincido con la opinión de Juyona sobre la paciencia Hernan... si sabes que están en esa flor esperando una presa, la paciencia es indispensable.
Me gusta la composición que captaste con buen punto de vista y adecuados detalles.
Yo no he tenido mucha paciencia buscando estas arañas, aunque he visto algunas, pero nunca en pareja...a propósito, como sabes cual es el macho y la hembra como mencionas en las notas?.
Un adecuado encuadre completa otra interesante presentación.
Saludos... Ricardo

http://www.terminix.com.mx/enciclopedia.php?58-Informacion del tema. Es un nombre popular que incluye flia: Philodromidae y Thomisidae.
La toma parece genero Xysticus especie.cristatus? onustus? eso es mas complejo, le dejo para una busqueda laboriosa de un dia de lluvia (que no faltan),hice una mirada para la mosca y es familia bibionidae seguro,el genero parece Bibio la especie necesita mas investigacion pero creo estar cerca.
Hablando de la foto es todo un documento; con la pareja y su alimento bien enfocados,dignos de una guia de campo identificatoria.

Hello Hernan,
a very dramatic composition, its natures way I guess. Not only one but two of those spiders... no escaping here. Very good POV and excellent details.
TFS..
