    That’s a very scary looking spider! What is it? I hope the bee flew away.

  2. Walking My Path: Mindful Wanderings in Nature says:

    Wow! Very cool!!

  3. Kris P says:

    I was so focused on the bee with the fur coat I didn’t even notice the spider at first. What a great photo! (But I hope the bee flew off unscathed!)

  4. In Canada we call this a hat-trick, great shot!

  5. Oh, Eliza…how wonderful.

  6. Brian Skeys says:

    Great photo, well captured.

  7. Christina says:

    Does the spider change colour depending on its background, We have one that looks very similar that does that.

  8. Sue Vincent says:

    Wonderful shot, Eliza ! ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Wow … there is so much to this picture. Brilliant

  10. Marvelous photo, a world of its own!

  11. Great photo, Eliza. ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Val Boyko says:

    Wow! Such a cool shot of nature in action!

  13. Jim Ruebush says:

    Everything has to eat.

  14. Robin says:

    Wow. I don’t think I have ever seen a crab spider before. You have a way of making little critters look so beautiful. ๐Ÿ˜€

  15. Oh Wow!! Love this especially against that back ground.

  16. Does a crab spider inject some sort of paralysis serum in order for that bee to not move? My stomach flip flops over this, yet this is a part of Nature too. That image is awesome, Eliza!!! โค

    Spider: “Is it open yet?”
    Bee: “Nah.”
    Spider: “OK.”
    … five minutes later …
    Spider: “Is it open yet?”
    Bee: “Nah.”
    Spider: “OK.’
    … five minutes later …

  18. Cathy says:

    Not only a beautiful shot, but also a fascinating one… ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. Laurie Graves says:

    Wonderful shot! And although we are sad for the bee, the spider has to make its living, too.

  20. Awesome capture with great color. The crab spiders are always very special, but i usually expect them to be munching on flies, a more standard fare.

    Amazing capture Eliza!

  22. Brenda says:

    Oh my, I’m wordless. Bees are short-lived so let’s hope this one was worn out and offered itself up for the spider!

  23. Kathy Sturr says:

    Oh my I just noticed the crab spider – watch out furry little bee! What a great shot!

  24. Excellent! How in the world did you get them to pose together? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  25. Bun Karyudo says:

    I read the full story in the comments. Poor bee! I guess the spider has future mouths to feed too, though, all 17,000 or something.

  26. Maria F. says:

    Two in one shot!

  27. Great shot Eliza. I didn’t recognise the spider until I saw the comments you have a hood eye for detail, clearly!

  28. Almost gives me hope for humans, to see a bee and spider co-existing so peacefully. Lovely photo, Eliza โค

  29. Giaskyler says:

    Very cool shot Eliza. Love it! It is amazing that you were able to have both spider and the fly in one shot.

  30. Giaskyler says:

    Just noticed it is a bee ha ha

  31. The Girl in the Little Black Coat says:

    I love the little things you notice!
