I am an avid nature photographer and love capturing the beauty that surrounds us. Monitoring this small insect for hours was a great day for me. Taken with a Nikon D7200, Aperture setting, ISO 400.
The crab spider is no bigger than a dime. It captures it's prey by hiding among the flowers and lying in wait for other insects to land. It then captures it's prey with it's legs and poisons the poor creature so it cannot escape.
