Great set of shots - such a shame the crab spider got it. Just shows how sneaky they are by the first shot, you just can't see that it's there.

Thanks for the comments :)

The hover in the first picture is not the one that got caught. There were 3 of the hovers on the plant at the time- after shooting the first one I noticed one of the other ones was behaving oddly and soon found out why.
