Nature Is Not Always Kind

A bee falls prey to a Yellow Crab Spider (Misumena vatia). In a natural state, these spiders are white or cream colored but have the ability to change their appearance to yellow 'at-will' when needed. For this reason they are often referred to as Goldenrod Spiders.

Awesome shot Harry! How long did you have to wait to get it? Or did you get lucky like that spider?
