“No other image in my portfolio had been so clearly conceived and yet so difficult to achieve,” shared Colley. “My artistic intent was to capture this extraordinary little bat’s speed of movement and hunting flight path, but the journey to success was littered with disappointing failures. Fortunately, fellow photographers encouraged imaginative experimentation and taught me to anticipate setbacks as a reasonable price for ultimate success.”

Waiting for Her Prey (Nursery web spider, Pisaura mirabilis)
Dunchideock, Devon
“I came across this female nursery web spider sitting patiently in a stunning dahlia bloom in a corner of our garden late last summer. The species is an ambush predator and will wait motionless for a considerable time before springing out and subduing its prey. Despite the prevailing warm temperatures that day this spider seemed oblivious to my presence; this allowed me ample time to set up my equipment and run a 32-image focus stack before she disappeared back into the ower head.”
