Earlier tonight I posted a shot of a backlit spider web. I walked past again and saw the web had done its job....a moth was trapped in a life-and-death struggle. When I tried to shoot it with my Takumar 135 2.8, the lens I had used on the web, I found that what I got was far more interesting than literal, and sharp closeups. The moth and spider are still about equal at this point.

As the spider got the upper hand, the thread on which they were fighting began swaying.

Finally, the moth hung lifeless

Eerie photos. I've never seen anything like them.

I liked them..almost like an X-Ray.
