While recently birding in Southern Ontario at the Bird Studies Complex trails near Long Point in a quiet time I took time to photograph some butterflies. I spotted a beautiful male Clouded Sulphur amongst the wild Asters and proceeded to take some pics. However, he flew up from the flower right into the web of a voracious Black and Yellow Striped Garden Spider. In the space of approx 1 minute he was toast (supper that is) as the spider attacked, killed and spun him into a convenient package. This was one quick and mean araneae.
Used my 300 for these pics and they didnt turn out too bad. (thanks again Sandy) Not quite macro but close. Depth of field was the only bothersome item but with the bright light I was able to adjust to compensate a bit.
