Cool shot. Is the prey a bee?

It seems to be some kind of leaf eating bee (if there is such a thing). There was a certain shrub (in Mexico) that was absolutely destroyed by swarms of these guys.

The photo below is not great but but gives an idea of what they look like. Pictures were tough because they were continually moving...busy as bees:lol:

Any ID help would be great.

No help on ID, but that is a great shot (#1). Those crabs are good at what they do, killing prey.

Lovely capture- interesting looking crab spider. presumably the bee was a leaf cutter bee.
