• This huge spider just captured and wrapped up this bee a minute earlier! In the time it took me to get my 300mm out and mounted, it caught the other bee!
  • This is a normal sized honey bee! It was an abnormally big spider...even for Florida!
  • Thorax - melanie_hughes

"Gotcha" said the spider to the bee............. (this is NOT a macro!)

I was watching this spider about 30 feet over my head when I saw this drama unfold...two honey bees flew into his web and within 2 minutes, they were... "dinner and a wrapped up snack for later!"
