That's life for you
Great captures from you as always
Your spiders are very powerful ones, able to catch preys several times larger. But this is a beautiful killer (V2), Carol. - Raja.

Nature at it's best (or worst for the butterfly in this case)...
That's going to be a very well fed spider. I do like the pink patterns on her back...
