Haven't been shooting much, but took some tentative shots of this crab spider / bee predation scene with my mobile phone.
shoot info not available.
Hope to shoot more.
Hope the view is enjoyable and comments welcomed.

Doesn't look tentative to me - super detail of predator, prey, and attending fly. I've seen smaller flies do this on crab spider prey.

Terrific shot-no excuses needed for the phone. :). Amazing pile-up of crag, bee and fly.
