I was out trying to shoot damselfly portraits. I hadn't seen this damselfly until I disturbed him and he flew straight into a spiders web. I had a split second to decide if I should save him.
The spider ran down his web and attacked the thrashing damselfly (when this was taken). He was dead within 60 seconds. The spider then dragged him up the web to the undersurface of a dried flower that the web was built from. Hidden from view he then went to work on his prey.
I felt a bit bad, but there were several other webs with the remains of damsels in them.

Nature red in tooth and claw. Even when the teeth are minute. Brilliant Photo journalism.

cheers, i've never seen anything quite like it.

I wasn't sure if the damsel would escape at first.

I was totally unprepared equipment wise, the web was about a meter away when the damsel hit it. I would have set the camera/lens/tripod up differently if it happened again.

Hadn't thought of it as photojournalism, but I guess it is in a way....

It's macro war photography.
