Garden danger

By jasonrwl
V1 - this rather strange looking spider laid in wait on this flower all day
v2 - early evening - this butterfly didn't realise how close it came!
v3 - next morning - a moth has fallen prey.

Thanks for looking.
Jason

Jason, these are wonderful images-- I cannot shoot any flowers these days without finding at least one crab spider somewhere in the image!

A terrific set of macros, v1 is a crab spider and i think the butterfly in v2 may be a short tailed blue

Thanks very much. These shots were taken in India - don't know if that helps on the butterfly id? I haven't been able to id it yet.
