Only 20 seconds, and you are transformed from a lively Green bottle fly in a European garden spider's lunch. Saw this one flying in a spiders web where it could
escape, just to fly in the next one. It took only twenty seconds to wrap it...

Talk about a "slice" of "real life" - great shots, my friend.

Good going Rense.
These are hard to get right, and you've done well - a little more DoF would have been great but a fine series nonetheless.
