Great action shot here my friend. The framing here is really good - the spider is razor sharp and seems to be cradling the fly in a 'kiss of death'. Lovely vibrant colours too.

What a fine macro of this Crab spider with its prey. I like your title - reminds me also of Strindberg's 'The Dance of Death'! Excellent focus and impressive sharp details.
Beautiful yellow flower (Mimulus?)as a background too.
Many thanks and regards, Ulla

Dear Ram Sir,

Dance with me baby? Sounds like Humphrey Bogart lines from an old black and white movie:-) Or perhaps if projected further into the future...and with a flare for the drama in images and words..you have created a horror flick! and yet it is simply a part of the cycle of life in both insects...and humans as well...although we tend to judge our 'kills' in political ways way too much. Very nicely seen in it's natural state.

What a brilliant shot. A beautiful close-up with excellent sharpness, and most delightful view. The details of both the flower and the spider are just eye-catching and I cannot really say the one is better than the other. But maybe the spider wins with a few points. What a luck shot.But not so lucky for the prey. You have been at the right spot at the right time. The combination of colours and the detail on the flower is great. A most appealing and bright and sunny sight. You have used the light well, emphasizing the golden threads within the flower. Thanks for sharing. I appreciated this one very much.

Wonderful macro of the action taking place on the petal. You caught it at just the right moment with the spider wrapping his arms around the fly. Great timing and superb details.

Good close-up of this Crab Spider and its meal.
I love the yellow tones and bright light.
DOF is a bit shallow but you've focused on the right areas.
Well done, Ram!
