Crab Spider with a Honeybee

By
In the absence of other water sources Honeybees will collect the dew that builds up between rose petals. Crab Spiders use those same rose petals as hunting blinds while they wait for unsuspecting foragers.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (1x) + a diffused MT-26EX-RT with a Kaiser adjustable flash shoe on the "A" head (the key), E-TTL metering, -1/3 FEC). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held. In post I used Topaz Denoise AI and Clarity in that order.

Whoops! Well, if it makes the Hymenoptera fans out there feel better, the other day I recorded a wasp dragging away a spider it had paralyzed as food for its progeny.

Nature can be perfidious :| ...interesting scene though.
