Opportunistic Spider; Unwary Moth

Pin It

It's been quite a while since I've posted here. So much rain and cold weather in our corner of the world has kept me from venturing out with a camera. Well, except on some walks - between the raindrops. One can see those photos on my Facebook page.

This sunny morning, upon seeing that one of my irises had bloomed, I pulled out my cell phone to take a few photos, noticed a small blue moth on the flower and thought, wow, lucky me:  a flower and a critter in one shot.

As I focused in, however, I saw that the moth was struggling and that's when I spied the spider.

Nature is not often kind, but she is always real.
