Garden Spider and prey

I wandered around the garden for an hour this afternoon and wasn't expecting to come across such a gory sight. There is something distinctly horror movie feel about these shots as the Garden Spider (Araneus diadematus) cocoons its prey in its web to consumer sometime later.

All shots Canon 1Ds Mk III, Canon 100mm prime L series macro lens + 35mm extension tubes
