EDITORS COMMENTS
This print by James Hager captures a remarkable moment in nature's cycle of life and survival. In the frame, we see a female goldenrod spider, known as Misumena vatia, feasting on its prey - a red-tailed bumble bee (Bombus ternarius). The scene unfolds at Waterton Lakes National Park in Alberta, Canada, showcasing the breathtaking beauty of this wild and untouched landscape. The image portrays the full length of both creatures against the backdrop of a serene lake. The spider is perched outside amidst vibrant greenery while devouring its meal with precision. Its white body stands out against the colorful wings of the deceased bumble bee. This side view perspective allows us to appreciate their intricate details and delicate features. As we observe this interaction between predator and prey, it serves as a reminder of nature's inherent balance and constant struggle for survival. The goldenrod spider's hunting prowess is showcased here in stunning detail, highlighting its ability to adapt to its surroundings. Waterton Lakes National Park proves to be an ideal habitat for these fascinating creatures. With no human presence evident in this non-urban scene captured by Hager's lens, it emphasizes how wildlife thrives undisturbed within protected areas like this national park. This striking photograph not only showcases the wonders of Canadian wildlife but also demonstrates James Hager's exceptional skill as a photographer capturing these animal themes with vivid color imagery that draws viewers into nature's raw beauty.
