This honey bee was intent on pollination and suffered elimination. Then crab spider was seen to eat a hoverfly only minutes earlier.

E-M1, Kiron 105 f16, twin TTLflash, hand-held.

Thanks, Phil.

The required DOF made me used f16, rather than my default f11 for this. The same spider was captured in a different scenario, to be posted soon.

Thanks. This is one of the few images which came out as intended, after looking very disappointing when reviewed in the camera.

Nice shot Harold. Looks like a tough angle, hard to get into those flowers sometimes, especially when trying not to disturb the subject. If you try nudging the back of the spider through the wall of the flower you might be able to maneuver it into a better position.

Thanks.

The flowers also act as huge sails in the slight but gusting breeze.

I have a set of the same spider, in an encounter a few minutes earlier, in which positioning was more compliant. I hope to upload them this week.

Just in case all of the above were not enough, it was the last image space on the card!
