I really wanted to see this butterfly. not in the jaw of a spider, but anyway.. I could see it, and get a lot of time thinking about at the end of all living things. Thank you for your comment, my friend, Dan.

Omg. I did not expect this. I always think my spottings not deserve SOTD when I see lots of wonderful photos that are envidas everyday to Noah. Today, 08/01, I am doing a year of Noah. Thank you for this gift, Yasser. Thanks to everyone members Noah. :)

wow, pretty catch!

thanks, jennifer, I love the wings. I waited for my chance to see this butterfly up close, I was somewhat disappointed when I approached and saw that it was stuck in the jaw spider. As if the lucky had smiled at me ironically. :D

Thanks, LuckyLogan. The spider did not know what to do with the butterfly. It spent a long time on leaf.

beaker friend, thank you.
