E-410 + 14-42

Not sure what this white spider is but it likes to eat bees and I hadn't noticed the little flies crawling over them when I took 2 & 3:

I think its a crab spider, although I could be very wrong! Nice captures!

Spider eating bee

That last picture is so freaky!
I'd love to see how it goes about devouring that huge bee ... timelapse?

Excellent images, quality and interest. You must be very observant to spot this drama.

Re: E-410 + 14-42

Thanks for all the comments, yes it's been interesting watching these go about their daily business and fun trying to get the pics.
1: I think they just hold on and suck out the juicy bits


2:


And they come in a nice shade of yellow (cheated a bit here, picked the flower and brought it inside as a bit windy today -put it outside again and will have another go when it's got a bit bigger)

Oh and a few more flies with the 70-300 - not quite there so a lot more practice needed before I invest in a proper macro lens???
