    I assume you nature lovers can handle the dark side. Crab spiders are pretty tough customers. They hide in flowers and often prey on bees and hornets.

    A photo series with rising tension! Well done!
    We get taken closer and closer to the crab spider!
    And the bees and even HORNETS have no means to fight them?
    A sting, for that matter???
    Interesting!

    the lighting and shadows is actually kind of dramatic and makes it even scarier =O

    Great series... I love spiders and seeing them in action is even better!!

    The first one is a little out of focus though, but it still gets the point across.
