Predator and Prey by brandtcampbell Predator and Prey by brandtcampbell
A funnel web spider in his crystalline web cavern right after a rain storm, feeding on some kind of fly. I was extremely lucky to end up with this photo, as the spider fled back inside his hole after a single shutter release!

Daily Deviation

Given 2013-06-30
*brandtcampbell magnificently photographs Predator and Prey in the spider's natural habitat, providing us with good insight to the surroundings of the spider as it begins to devour its meal. The blue tone lends a cool, collected feeling to this piece, and the natural occurrence of nature as a concept is emphasised to great depth. ( Suggested by batmantoo and Featured by 3wyl )
:iconssbbforeva:
wow, absolutely incredible.
the soft blues on the droplets lend a feeling of cool calm, and the crystalline effects makes it appear like something from another world.

the blend of this gentle silence with the spider's delicate danger gives the piece a unique twist in the depiction of life.

even the poor insect that was caught has a glistening quality, as if in its death it became part of this glassy world.

I wish I could give a more helpful critic, but quite honestly I don't think there is anything that should be changed. it definitely earned that daily deviation.
What do you think?
