The Spider, The Bee, and the Flies

I tried to go on a walk this sunny San Diego morning, but I did not make it 30 feet out the front door, before I found this spectacular photo opportunity.

This green spider captured the bee and several small flies (?) have jumped on board.

Video coming soon!

i’ve noticed you’ve set your shutter speed to 1/250 with these shots using the MT-24EX. i thought that the 5d mark III had a sync speed of 1/200? do you not get any black shutter marks on top of your shots?

pAd – I have not seen any black shutter marks with the Mark III. I have seen them before on the Mark II at 320.
