Banded Argiope climbing up web to have a nice snack of a caught bee.
Meadow in the Poconos.
Thank you. I kept on clicking until the spider and bee were fighting, grabbed a reed and the little web the bee was caught on released and it flew away. NEW PHOTOS!
Great action... Great macro work....I wonder how long you kept shooting this scene...!!
The bee is a bumble bee, probably Bombus impatiens.
Bee rescue is completely appropriate, these days!
I got a thick reed and I saved the bee. HA! Yes, I interfered with nature. Thanks everyone!
Poor bee! Wonderful series! I spotted a similar contest between a praying mantis & a bee - on that occasion the bee won the day! http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/741...
Wow, that last shot says it all!
