Spider dining on dragonfly.

Spider dining on dragonfly.

So, I go out to the woods one afternoon and came across an incredible moment in nature–a spider dining on a dragonfly caught in its web. At first glance I just thought it was Mr. Spidey curled up having a snooze. Although I could see the dried wings of a dragon fly caught in the web, which is something I see quite often, with my naked eye I couldn’t make out what was going on. It wasn’t until I got in close with my 100M macro lens that I realized the spider actually had the head of the dragonfly in his arms and was clearly having dinner. From one angle it actually looked like the spider was cradling the dragonfly’s head…I love the little strings of web you can see in the background.
