    Default A behemoth catch

    ID: Lynx spider with a huge beetle catch

    So after several failed attempts to frame the most non-cooperative and shy scorpionflies, I stumbled upon a Lynx spider perched on a short plant, which also housed some other insects. While planning to frame that Lynx realized something on the branch behind it, which turned out to be another Lynx with a fresh and momoth-ish beetle catch. Luckily the Lynx was not in any mood to give away the catch, and probably due to its size it wasnt able to move off the leaf, giving us a good opportunity to frame the beauty, though in tough location.

    Looks to be a big catch. How much of a crop is this? You got decent shutter speed here. At times it becomes difficult to get a clean image of these fellows as they move into some nook and corner making life difficult for the photographers. Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers,

    The vertical framing has helped to get the full spider and the beetle. Good details. Thanks for sharing.
