Absolutely Extraordinary! Really, especially that Tiger in the Water one. I would have been afraid for my life by being that close to an animal that could kill me with one swap. And those pictures deserve awards for the fantastic photography skills of the photographer and there courageous hearts for capturing mind blowing pictures with killer beasts.

Starred and Flagged mate!

I just wanted to thank you for putting these together for everyone. I know many here would not have had the chance to see them otherwise.

I always have to laugh a little when I think about humanity. We seem so weak, so ...disadvantaged compared to the finely tuned killing machines displayed here. Then, it dawned on me. Regardless of how smart, or stupid people view each other as a species, one truth remains constant. Humans made it to the top because our brain makes up for our lack of physical strength. That same brain that brought us here so quickly could, in my humble opinion, also remove us from this most coveted spot on the food chain.
Maybe that's part of its brilliance, its design.

Maybe we are about to hit the cut-off point.

I definately have to give out a s and f for this. I loved the 8th pic of the bee(?) gathering the pollen. It looks supremely evil looking.

Very beautiful pictures. Nature is amazing. It is very nice to be reminded there is still so many positive things still in this world. I fail yet to know of anytime I was not amazed with Nature and what it encompasses.

I like number 25... the eagle.

I might use that as a substitute avatar

The quality is flawless and the beauty of nature is breathtaking. So many, I couldn't say which is my favorite! However the praying mantis, "Aliens", is very cool. I think I will add it as my background

Absolutely beautiful!!! Each and every one of these pictures are great great art !!

But I have this phobia about snakes...If ever I would get face to face with a #5 or a #13...well...they wouldn't have to bite me for me to die!


Great post, Thank You !!

S&F.

Great pictures, bit I personally think the context is skewed by some of the lame titles.

Where is YOUR brain............? Been here a long time and keep reading the fear, Humans should DIE, Humans are killing MOTHER(effing) earth etc. Get a grip people. FEAR......Mankind, (10%) are the most ruthless being's that WE or THEY know of on this planet. (Excepting of course "the Grey's") Go read a book..... some real history or tote a rifle and a short gun on sec. detail and watch people, good and bad. stand.My Bad, I understand. The Pic's were and are awesome BTW, Thanks and Cheers!

Shameless self-plug.
Ever hear of a predatory caterpillar? No?
The image does not match those of the OP (stunning) but...killer caterpillars?
