A beautiful capture of this craby holding the butterfly. Sorry for that poor guy. But that is nature. Excellent details and composition. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Apart from in-flight shots, this is probably the only way we can get to see what the uppersides of the wings of this butterfly and related species.
Excellent capture of the prey and the Crab Spider with the usual high technical merits as well as fine composition and OOF natural BG.
Well done and TFS!

Quite the large dinner the spider has there..I suppose he shall store bits...I would not have noticed unless you had said in notes...in picture sans notes, it appears as unusual but not two things..and then with notes..it becomes apparent...Good use of words and image...a treat from you Pankaj!

I do like it Pankaj; especially the light on that wing and also the content trough this spider attack.

So sad to see a butterfly in this distress situation. Your shot is perfect. Those reverse antennae tell the tale. Very well done.

Very nice moment of the scene you've captured!!
Well focused on the spider with excellent DOF.
Actually, I've never get this kind of photo so far.
Well captured and TFS,

An everyday drama of nature, and the outcome is unavoidable!
Good point of view and superb details, a well composed presentation with a fine feeling of depth!

What an excellent capture of this tragic end for a beautiful lady.
Magnificent shot with great sharpness, POV, DOF and composition.
Thank you so much, dear Pankaj.

an "strong" image, that which we present today. I suffer a little, seeing the beautiful butterfly victim of spider. But this is normal in the world of insects!
Colours, light, focus, sharpness, point of view and composition are perfect.

Hi dear Pankaj,
A magical moment eternalized for their lens!
Excellent framing and great perpective.
Not always the most is the strongest... a small spider and its brutal force!
Thanks for sharing this marvel!

You present us a dramatic picture that remeinds us of the cruel reality. Nature is not only beautiful, but also hard. Your picture has the merit to reveal this.

Another carefully observed and brilliantly captured shot. I really cannot say anything else - the shot is pretty near perfect.

Superb dramatic scene and terrific sharpness and details of the insects and leaves on the top right-hand corner. Amazing flash light and tremendous rich colour palette. I like that BG is illuminated very well too. Excellent square composition. Bravo and TFS.
