If it isn't tough enough in this world for the bee we have to add in the crab spider... well detailed image of the spider and the bee with the white of the crab spider and the darkened form of the bee creating a sense of balance in the image.

Wow, an amazing shot. Talk about being in the right place at the right time. Should be on National Geographics.

When it comes to webs. Is that spider Bistringual? I like them equal so I don't really care who wins...

Thanks for your comments. Thanks Gerry. I sat on the ground in front
of a bush. and the spider was right there. So right place and the
right time fits this pic perfectly. Donald this spider doesn't use
spider web. He hides under petals, and when he attacks he injects
poison into his victims, killing them almost instantly.
I agree with you Jan, the bees do not have a bright future.
