    The vertical composition is nice. The plain wall offers a nice clean background. You could have increased the ISO for a higher aperture. Nice action captured. Thanks for sharing.

    Nice. Agree about the aperture. A less bright BG would have been nice. It is a Crab Spider.

    Wonderful moment , nicely captured. Liked the extended sting of the bee with the little drop stuck to it. I think a little more space at the top would be nice to emphasize the strength of the spider silk.

    Default Very clear pic

    very clear, symbolic too

    Nitin: It is possible, though a little far-fetched for the droplet to be poison. Bee's sting is designed to be inserted and then breaks off, practically killing the bee due to torn abdomen. There is constant release of toxins from it after that. So my guess is that the design is to insert the sting first and not really push venom first.
    it is not like snake fangs where droplets of poison come on the tip of the hypodermic-syringe-like fangs.

    However, a bit of it leaks out too, as the canal is made of 2 parts rubbing against each other.

    This is gyaan from Nat Geo...
