Dinnertime       ©2018 mbbin2
Panasonic DC-G9       8th place, 75 points
1/639s, f13, ISO 640, 560mm, Aperture Priority, Spot, no flash
 
Post-Processing: cropped and resized       Extra Info: I chose this one because of the excitement I felt for about 20 minutes of shooting this anole feeding in the cannas.. I do not understand the interaction between the bee and the lizard. It was almost like the bee was stroking and the lizard was enjoying. The observant fly became dinner soon afterward.

    Quite weird, thought the bee would be food too.

    Oh my, poor fly....
Patience really paid off here.
Nice capture of a moment in time.
Don't think I've ever seen a shot like this before :)

    a case of keeping your friends "close" and an eye on the fly

    The bee-lizard interaction is indeed what's of interest here - so much so that I hadn't even noticed the fly until after I read your note. I'd suggest a much tighter crop that concentrates just on the bee and the anole.

    This is an extremely interesting nature shot! I love your Extra Info. What really is going on here? Why is the bee not getting eaten? Why is the bee touching the anole??? So many questions.
