Rear View

Challenge #26 in the Life in the Natural World series. Hosted by RuthC.
Challenge has finished
It's the end of the year, so let's see some end views! We spend so much time trying to capture the faces and eyes of insects and spiders, that we often overlook the interesting and often colourful abdomens of these little creatures. Show us their rear view! Macro and close-up shots only. The creatures should be outside, on flowers, leaves, flying or sitting around, or just doing what they do; NOT under studio lights. SIZE: 1,600px MAXIMUM ON LONGER SIDE.

A very lucky catch - one second it was there, the next it was gone.
