    Grass spider in a bush in my yard. Anyway, this guy was hanging out, and then moved a bit closer, until a small fly hit the web. The spider snatched him quickly, and...yum...breakfast. :) GH2 with 45/2.8 macro:

    Wow, fantastic shots. Somehow I get the feeling the spider is looking at me and thinking, "How do I eat that?"
