Took these today. Seems like my usual haunt has a healthy population of green crab spiders.....just within 1m of shrubs, I saw 4 of them of various sizes. Here is one of them which moved alot, and changed its position too. Also, I notice they spin alot of thread, and they use it to move from leaf to leaf...... And just as my son's lesson was about to be over, I notice the ladybird! It was moving all the time, so had to move along to take the shots....well, if had more time, would have taken more....

Appreciate any comments!

FZ10+6T+Sigma CU, Ext bounce flash, ISO 50, F8, various speeds

These positions are quite unusual for this green crab spiders. They usually remain still and prone on the leaf. Notice the thread on the rear of the first pic? There are plenty of dangling threads from leaf to leaf at the bushes there, and I think these fellas are the culprits...(have seen the threads in the past....so now I think I know who caused them)

Thanks for these shots, Tchuanye.

They are always very pleasant to watch at.

Good shots. The spider almost looks translucent. Is the lady bug really an orange colored? I am used to bright red ones.
