  3. You captured them at the right timing. Excellent shot that proves the peace and tranquility we find in Nature is a reality only for superficial observers...

  4. Whatever is eaten, some life is taken in order that life is given to someone/something else.

    1. I guess observation is a good part of photography. In this case, I had noticed the butterfly suddenly stop in mid-air. Knowing that butterflies can't usually do that, I hurried over to see what was happening, and arrived just as the spider was emerging from it's hiding place.

  7. Living with a feline "trio infernal" nothing shocks me any more - my felines say "that's life".

    2. I'm not surprised the felines would say that, considering they're not averse to eating the odd butterfly themselves!!! LOL.

  9. Nice photo of a cool Chelicerata chilling for lunch. Being the frugal fellow that he is, I'll bet he wraps some of his meal up and saves it for later.
