Base gallery.

Photo, and identified by: Vasiliy Feoktistov. Image without retouching at the website

Date and time, location shooting/catching: 2014-05-27 11:16:00, Russia, Vladimir reg., Petushinsky distr., near Starye Omutishchi village.

Photographer's comment: Бабочка поймана цветочным пауком Misumena vatia (Clerck, 1757) идеально замаскировавшимся по окраске под цветы ракитника, на которые решила сесть бабочка.. Конечно можно это фото назвать не соответсвующим тематике сайта.... Но поражает изобретательность паука в маскировке. Вот-так вот: села боярышница на ракитник и не увидела что её ожидает :) О виде паука:Цветочный_паук
