It's amazing how a Crab Spider can take down a much larger animal. This one has managed to capture a Honeybee.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/60, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (over 1x to around 2x) + a diffused MT-26EX-RT with a Kaiser adjustable flash shoe on the "A" head (the key), E-TTL metering, -1/3 FEC,). These are single, uncropped, frames taken hand held. In post I used Topaz Sharpen AI, Denoise AI, and Clarity in that order.

Lovely picture! There is so much "magic" in nature even close by if we just care to look for it.

Oh Lawd how many times have I ran across this! Surprised Those little spiders always go right for the back of the neck. That has got to be painful at the onset. Great photographs though. Very Happy

I think that area behind the neck might be a weal spot, a way to avoid getting stung, or both.
