The wind finally let up enough to do some close-up photography last weekend, so I went to a small prairie here in town and wandered a bit. Among numerous curiosities was the abundance of a tiny iridescent fly. I had to try quite a few times to get a decent photo of one. (They kept flying away!)
Not long after I got the above photo, I was ready to call it a day, and started walking back to the truck. I was hot and tired, but was drawn to a particular patch of milkweed. As I closed in, a small movement caught my eye. It was another of the shiny little flies. But in a bit of beautiful symmetry, it was being eaten by a shiny little spider!
