[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A few days ago we went to Karagöl that located near Fevziye Village on Katirli Mountains, to take some water lilly photos. After taking we wanted to go Iznik Lake to see and capture sunset. By the roadside, near village Fevziye we saw this butterfly on a white flower. We stopped our car and went colser. We begun taking its poses. I adjusted my camera and press shutter release key. When I looked at the display I surprised, its wings was open during I touch the key, but here it has closed the wings. I tried to take again but it flew away.

I arrived at home and transfered my photos to PC. Suddenly I saw this interesting scene. A white spider located under the butterflay and it tries to hunt the BF. This time the spider was not succesful to hunt BF. I hope the spider could not sting, and BF can stay alive. But this is a naturel act... Someone have to be a hunt, someone have to be a hunter. Someone have to die, to make another creature alive.

Fevzi bey mükemmel kamufle olmuş bir pusucu (yengeç örümceği, Musimena vatia) ve avını tuzaklamasına ilişkin bir belge. Elinize sağlık. Tebrikler.

PS. Çektiğim fotoğraflar arasında Türk Çayır Esmeri'nin ve ayrıca bal arısının benzer şekilde tuzaklanmasına ilişkin kareler var. Belki ilginizi çekebilir.

Very nice! I love the dark background and the detail you have captured in your subject. Strong composition and the spider adds interest to an already awesome shot! Well done.
