Don't Dare To Eat Me!
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|We went to Alexandra Hospital Butterfly Trail for Macro shooting with my friend. As we all know that the crab spider's strategy is to camouflage itself on its sorrounding and waiting for its potential prey. It was a split seconds actions and I do however managed get 3 shots. The story goes like this.|
A dragonfly came from nowhere suddenly perches on the same spot for this crab spider. The spiky leg of DF touching the body part on CS, then suddenly the CS made a jerking move and pointing its 2 fingers. I mean "pointing its 2 legs" perhaps scolding the DF for not to eat him. Poor DF, might confused and scared, decided to leave the CS alone.
