2012, Day 230 - Sneak attack!

It's bug wars!  On my walk home from a grueling workout I stopped to look for excitement around a really nicely planted garden.  I've been on the lookout for a crab spider all summer but so far I've had no luck.  The rest of the spiders have hatched and some are getting pretty big but no crab spiders to be seen.  Granted, they are extremely well camouflaged but I've found them before.

What I did find was a battle of the bugs.  I was watching a small bee busy collecting pollen from a series of flowers and he was repeatedly attacked by another species of bee.  Glad for a diversion I waited, not so patiently, for another attack and this is what I managed to capture.  I would like to say it was due to my prodigious skill but I think luck played a large part in my success :)
