it isn't pretty, but it sure is FINAL...
Posted By: Marc Langille, 06-27-2007, 04:37 PM

I don't often get this sort of shot of predator and prey together. That's a great way to end the day for the spider, but the fly certainly has a bad start to his evening....



It's a bit creepy, but in a way I am almost wondering if the fly said "DOH!" before being caught...

Cheers,
Marc

That is survival of the fittess - I can't say enough about the detail - I would have said that was CGI but I have seen your other work. I am humbled (but not as much as the fly )

I appreciate your comments - thank you. I didn't realize that my images seemed like CGI work!

I will not post if it's not close to the original - I prefer minimal PP. Otherwise I'll clearly indicate it's been modified.

Cheers,
Marc

Everything has already been said, but I wanted to add my own kudos to those you got. Amazing shot !

May I ask which lens(es) you used to take it ?

Thank you! I used the FA* 200/4 for this image.

Here's a better selection of what it can do:
