Nice calm place here, no enemy in sight...



But what happens now?

The spider is coming up. The fly doesn't move. :O



The spiderseems to be interested in the fly.



But it doesn't bite into it.



Some experts suppose, the spider couldn't have recognized the fly as food, because of its motionlessness.



The spider ceases from the fly and goes back to the underside of the leaf.



It remains unclear what exactly happened there.

Awesome sequence! Great shots.

It does, however, appear to me that the spider may have got to the fly prior to the first photo. Take a look at the spider's left rear foot (if it can be called that). A web line is attached from it to the fly, leading me to think you caught the action sometime after the fly and spider first met.Maybe the spider was busy securing his catch, and then decided to climb back up to inject some more of its digestive juices into its next meal - yum,yum! Love those nature shots. I need a macro lens for my z5!!!

Yes, you're right. I've alreadyseen that. But if I was a spider, I wouldn't let my prey sit on a leaf where everyone can see it.

Maybe he was just slow basting it in the sun.

"I'm curious as to what lens you used to capture the action. Very impressive.

"BTW - in which part of Germany do you live? I work for a German company and travel to Bavaria (between Munich and Garmisch) several times a year. Just love it.

The lens I used is the Raynox DCR-250.

I live more in the middle of Germany. You might now Frankfurt which is not far away from where I live.

Stoney79,

Very nice series with a story to tell. That FZ3 and you knowing how to use it like Narmer does with the FZ20 is superb.
