O my dear - poor butterfly!
You catched the right moment, Nigel, a wonderful shot. Very good sharpness and colours. I like it, thanks

Great shot Nigel,
Excellent detail, sharpness and composition. The colours and exposure are very good. Good POV. The spider is well camouflaged in the flower.
Thanks for posting, have a great weekend

Great capture of this moment!
The specie is a Melitaea cinxia.
Unlucky guy...just traped by a spider.
Specie very rare in Portugal too.

just discovered your dramatic documentary picture of Melitaea xinxia getting kissed to death by a crab spider. An impressive document.
Noticed you did not get as many smileys on that picture as to my opinion you deserve to receive. Our friends at TN seem to prefer the bright side of life but not a spider doing her job. (I've made the same experience with my crab spider portraits ;)).
Thanks for your fine note, too. What a pity our screens do not show the UV spectra as good as RGB ;).

Cool capture. These crab spiders are well camouflaged. Dramatic shot with quite a nice composition.
