Oops! Just for Fun.


This was taken a while back but I thought it might be a reasonable offering for Lens-Artists Weekly Photo Challenge: #17 Just For Fun


A Hoverfly: Eristalis Tenax, makes an unscheduled landing on top of a Crab Spider!

I was focusing on the fly and because of it’s ability to blend in I only  noticed the spider after I had taken the photograph -which is why the spider is out of focus, and probably explains why the Hoverfly didn’t notice the spider either.

Almost certainly a Once Off  for all parties concerned.
