Well, this time not so dramatic as the first one, but still able to be at the right place at the right time, as this JS ate the fly within 5 min of my arrival. First noticed the fly or mosquito, and took out my A610 reverse set up. As I was about to take the pic, I notice the JS up the leave....immediate thought....oh oh...don't tell me it spotted it (cos it was quite far apart relatively speaking)....so switch gear, and used FZ10. Really fast, unlike the heavy jumper, this guy creep....creep....creep....pause.....POUNCE! After a shot of it in the mouth, it hid under the leaf.

Anyway, here is a montage, and some close ups....

Appreciate your comments...

#1: The Kill


#2:Vision
The JS vision is unique. It can scan the environment with each eye independently. IF you see the eye is black, it is looking at you. If brown, its not looking directly at you


#3:Golden Eyes

The Pics really take my breath away!

Fun to see a mosquito to get what it deserves - I´m not bitter or anything :G

Keep them coming...

I think you should be a staff photographer for National Geographic or Nature. Is there any way we can draw their attention to you?

Splendid series, well documented, master Tchuanye

Really interesting also for the central eyes looking towards different directions
