A crab spider and its prey

A Crab Spider and its Prey

Published: Last Updated on

I took this photo of a crab spider that had just killed this bee last week at my local haunt. I was amazed at how ambitious this crab spider was. They don’t build webs like most spiders, instead they are ambush predators. Once they are within striking distance they attack and kill their prey with a deadly bite.

Today I have been learning more about the world of blogging and I have to say I’m getting well into it! I discovered Photoblogs.org which made me realise just how many photography blogs were out there, from there I also found moodaholic which has some fantastic images.

I specialize in macro photography also. Isn’t it nice to have a regular place where you can count on shots like these? Good work!
