Wolf Spider (i think!!) killing baby mosquito.
Canon 1000D + Sigma APO-DG-MACRO-70-300+ Raynox DCR 250.
One of the toughest macro shots for me. Nikhil Walvekar pointed out this spider which was hanging upside down from leaves... when i captured it.. realized it was actually with the kill (its so small that you cannot make that out with bare eye!!).
Focusing was biggest problem (looking upword at the sky and focusing 1 mm at a time :D).. so Nikhil helped by supporing my elbows.. Fortunately i could get the wing and the eyes in the same plane of focus!!
This is ZERO CROP !! that's a bonus :)
