wow, what a superb "double"-shot, mark! :-)
excellent composition with great sharpness and amazing details.
good to add the "final" shot in the WS, to see its success.
well seen & captured, thorsten.

An excellent macro shot on this Assassin Bug. Light quality was very good, and the exposure looks to have been right on the money. Nice color saturation and sharp detail. I am glad you showed us the workshop photo of the kill..Very nice work!

Ciao Mark, ancora un bel soggetto macro.
Colori e dettagli sono OK, buono il POV.
Nice shot. I'm just wondering whether the fly is so small or the bug so large. Good POV and exposure. Congratulations,

You have presented a very effective shot of the rough conditions for survival! This scene is quite charged with atmosphere and you were there to freeze it at the right moment. Very good job and valuable follow-up,

Nice macro. Well focused and sharp where it must be. Very good detail, light, and color. I like the bug's pose, with outstretched forelegs..The second small OOF "dead ahead" bug's a nice bonus too :)
Well done & TFS!

Espectacular presentación de esta secuencia de 2 imágenes súmamente instructivas.
Buen POV con excelente DOF y nitidez (sobre todo en el insecto mayor).
Un trasfondo difuso colabora con la claridad de la escena..
Una interesante entrega, sin dudas.
Spectacular presentation of this sequence of 2 images highly instructive.
Good POV with excellent DOF and clarity (mainly in the bigger insect).
A diffuse background collaborates with the clarity of the scene.
An interesting post, without doubts.

What a glamorous looking assassin bug, Mark!
The image is very well composed from above, giving perfect details and colours of its topside view.
That the prey is about to be devoured is palpable in this well timed shot.
It is a pleasure to go back to the pictures I missed in you portfolio during my long absence.

Bardzo lubie ten gatunek owadow, bo sa kolorowe i ladne, choc drapiezne. Twoje zdjecie jest ostre, oko pluskwiaka blyszczy, tylko kadr zrobilabym mniejszy. Wiem, ze chciales pokazac obecnosc drugiego owada :).
