Challenge #23 in the Life in the Natural World series. Hosted by RuthC.
Challenge has finished
In the world of small creatures, show us two or more insects and/or spiders, (or other small arthropod creatures) who encounter or confront each other. Perhaps they are just passing, or maybe eyeing off a potential mate OR their next meal. Please, for this challenge, NOT one devouring the other for lunch; NOR in the act of mating; that will be other challenges. They should be outside, on flowers, leaves, or trees, NOT under studio lights. Macro shots welcome. SIZE: 1,600px MAXIMUM ON LONGER SIDE.
