The most important rule of the life is: Kill to be staying alive. Crab spider hunts a butterfily. Spider 1, butterfly 0... And the game has just finished...

Fill flash was used.


I posted two shots about this hard attack.
1- You see here the beginning time of spider attack.
2- You see here After having meal, the spider brhushes his teeth...

Hi Fevzi,

brutal truth... but nice photo, very well captured, nice POV and sharp details, nice light/shadow contrast and colours.

Hello Fevzi,
This is a very beautiful photo. The contrasting colours are great. Excellent light, BG and POV.
Have a wonderful weekend,

Fevzi bey son derece atraktif ve mükemmel bir enstantane. Elinize sağlık. Bahadır

Hello Fevzi,
I have seen the entire sequence you have provided through three images and described it so humorously in your brief note.
All the three images are very superior, quality-wise.
For this shot, you have chosen a fantastic point of view that shows the Crab Spider handling its prey from below.
And that "After having meal, the spider brushing his teeth" made me laugh out loud :):):)....
Warm regards.
