Nature, red in tooth and claw. Came across this scene yesterday. This robber fly killed and consumed an eastern pondhawk which is itself a formidable predator.

I like the photograph, but wonder if it wouldn't have more impact in color.

Thanks, William. I thought the color version provided a green overdose, but I will post a version of it here. Now I'm interested in hearing opinions of B&W version vs. color. Attached also is a shot from another angle.

Regards,

Wasil

Nice work Wasil. I prefer the color images also. I think the different colors provide a better contrast between the two subjects.

Thanks, John. I might have made a hasty decision in posting it b&w. Things just looked a little too green to me. It might be because of all the rainfall we've had here in South Carolina. Everything is green, growing and wet.
