A Pearl-Bordered Fritillary butterfly has no chance as this brilliantly disguised spider pounces!...
... actually this one got away... so happy ending!
The backlighting really brings out the colour
great timing for the 2 on the same flower, beautiful lighting and excellent detail
crab spiders are brilliant as is this shot.....
Amazing, a great image with wonderful light.............Sandy
Nice one .
Very well captured against the back lighting.
Excellent capture. Love the backlighting
A fantastic image, glad the butterfly made its escape. Carol
A terrific image Tim, such wonderful back lighting and timing to catch this moment. You could have entitled this one "The Great Escape", although the butterfly did better than Steve McQueen as he did manage to get away!
great shot and fortunate capture with the crabspider
Thanks Tim super, regards gray.
A lovely image... (as always!). The light is superb, and you always seem to manage to find butterflies in perfect condition.
Thanks Roger! Thank you all for your very kind comments!
Another superb shot of a species I don't think I've seen you upload before? I know I saw a handful of these for the first time last year.
You've captured the flower beautifully with the light shining through the leaves and the flower itself.
I have watched these crab spiders for some time in the past with the hope of capturing the moment when they catch their prey but in fact the ones I have watched have been really terrible and missed dozens of no brainers so not quite sure how the manage to eeke out an existance!
Thanks John, I saw a Moroccan Orange at the moment of attack but the camera was too far away still. I even tried to save it but was too late... so the crab spiders do have some success!
