Excellent work. These little buggers certainly know how to get a meal as your gruesome captures so ably demonstrate. V2 for me.

Not half.......that should last it fora god many meals: amazing that something quite small can manage to overpower and capture such a much larger insect.
Very good shots of the event, Carol.
