Hello Friends.

I decided to share another photo today, but after taking this war photo I changed my decision. I was in my farm again today. The weather is partial cloudy and it is time to take photos of butterflies. Actually I didn't find but I found this special shot.

The crab spider waits for pray on a petale of a Cistus creticus flower. A bee is not aware of anything comes here. The bee plans to collect some feed for its colony. Suddenly the spider attacs on the bee. Poor bee! It doesn't live anymore. The spider begins to drink "juice of bee" wit his pipette.

I was there and took immediately some photos. And now, you see here the summary of the story as a photo.

Have a nice week :)

Merhaba MF,
Very interesting post with great action. The crab spider looks very aggressive! It has nice pattern. The camouflage is not very perfect, I see... The sharpness and the colours are fantastic. Well done! Iyi geceler,

Hello Fevzi,
I do not know how you did, but the composition of this photo is delicious! That's hard to do with so many elements, I think that leave the flower on the right side is a very good decision!.
In other hand... poor bee! a spider crab with hungry lot! good job! a picture is dramatic and very well made, great focus, look in the eyes of this spider! are perfects! ... congratulations!
TFS / Have a nice week,

Simplemente fantastica.


Doğadan son derece güzel bir aksiyon karesi. Tebrikler Fevzi.
