The Spider and the Fly

Nature is such a beautiful thing. One of the best things about it is, is that you never know what you are going to see. Getting to capture those random moments is so much fun!

Now, I will admit that I am not a fan of spiders. They freak me out with their crazy legs and all those eyes. Some spiders are so pretty though, even if I don’t like them. We were hiking in Manassas Battlefield and I saw this pretty guy. Photographing a spider is a bit of a challenge but in this case it was well worth it.

I want you to look at this picture REALLY close. What do you see?



Did you spot the fly? Look on the body of the spider! I didn’t notice it until I uploaded my pictures after hiking. Needless to say, I was super excited. I promise, the fly was there all on his own, not edited in. This is by far one of my favorite pictures and a great example of capturing nature’s unexpected.

Krissy - The fly is taking a rest on a crab spider. Awesome!
