Big spider wrapping up a bee at Withlacooche State Park, FL

While running the Croom Trail at Withlacoochee State Forest with my friends, we encountered several large spider webs stretching from one tree to another. This one spider web in particular caught our attention. It had a big red dotted spider that had captured a bee. I was fascinated. I got closer and without disturbing it took a picture with cellphone. I wanted to capture this moment of the spider, bee and web with the forest on the background, as it was that beautiful morning on the trail.
