Deadly

By pennyspike
Another from the French trip during a walk close to where we were staying.
This crab spider was tucking into its prey bee.
They inject a chemical into the bee then suck out the innards. Yum Yum.

Focusing was so difficult as there was quite a wind blowing but I was pleased to get one.

good DOF, and nicely timed capture Penny. Plenty of detail to see in large version.
