I set out this morning to photograph some lillies in my back yard, but found a much more interesting subject. This crab spider had a honey bee in his clutches and was feasting.

Notice the front appendages, (don't know what they're really called) they actually have skewered its prey and is sucking on it with his mandibles.

impressive!
But I think this is a hover fly....
I have pictures of spiders, packing hoppers like christo!
Did not dare to publish them yet.

But this spider is a show!
Thanks for sharing!
