From oblivious to oblivion ... encore.
I would have called this predator, prey and pollination, hows that one for the young buck. I like what was done to this already great capture.

Beautiful capture on this scary scane.POV,sharpness,clear details,framing and composition are perfect.Have a great weekend!
Where have I seen this before? ;)
a very nice composition and interesting overall scene. The small fly is:
- Urophora cardui
- family: Tephritidae
Best wishes, Peter
no more icicles - but flowers and fliers from New Scotland: that looks different my dear friend! Slowly, slowly, in the near future, you might even go as far as picturing butterflies. But you are not a friend of the idyllic places, I know. The little bit of horror provided by a crab spider in the petals makes flower power more digestible.
"Moving less you will be catching more" - what a nice motto, I'll gratefully take that with me!
With thanks, and best regards,
this is avery good macro shot, you captured a good action
with the crab spinder hugging the poor fly, I think I have post a similar.
Good details, well exposed and nice colours.
magnifique ces 2insectes en meme temps
bonne présentation, bravo

Hey Jay, in this case, more is more. The spider obviously is going for the bigger bite. I'm guessing while he's working on the big guy he's not going to worry about a little morsel like a stem-gall fly.
I like the composition with the small guy dead centre in the shot, while all of the activity takes place on the sidelines. Good colour and detail.

Superb drama, Jay! You did a great job capturing this. Background does look nicer.
Great Pov, superb colours
This one reminds me of the classic poem,"Will you walk into my parlor?" said the spider to the fly".Well seen and captured.There seems to be alot of activity going on,on top of that flower.Good overhead POV ,well focused with good use of lighting.TFS
Nice capture for both, your photo and the spiders meal.
