Sweet White Violets

Cold, wet weekends have kept me out of the woods so I have not imaged many wildflowers this spring. We do have some violets growing in the back yard which gave me an opportunity to get some shots.

When I started to edit the images, I noticed that I had captured something unexpected.

Do you see it yet? It’s a bit muddled.

Take a look at the flower to the left.

The is a spider that caught a bee in the violet. The interesting aspect is that the spider’s abdomen is colored like the veins in the flower.

The violets are very pretty and the spider is very cool. Nature is awesome!

This spring, I have been noticing a lot of insects in the flowers!! i suppose it is a good place to catch dinner...
Love the white violets - a colour I do not have...

The whites are even more delicate looking.

Fabulous shots of these delicate white violets. Neat capture of the bee/spider.

Great macro of the fight to the death in the violet. White violets are a treasure although rather invasive.
