I was taking this swallowtails photo and waiting on closer shots. Then it flew right into the orb spiders web. As you can see in the photo's the swallowtail was old and shopworn, but what a way to go.

Oh, shucks --- and it was a gravid female too. But at least the spider got a good meal! :D

Thought provoking series of pics Bill. One moment you're minding your own business looking at the flowers and supping nectar and the next thing you know....is the last think you'll ever know :(
