David and Goliath by SublimeBudd David and Goliath by SublimeBudd
the bigger ant must have just died.. a group of lil ants were carrying off the body

they only moved it about an inch every few minutes
but it eventually was taken back to their home :hungry:

it was very entertaining to watch


more of my bug's life shots :giggle:

Good photograph. Before I read the description, I didn't know that ant was dead. I just thought he was bent over looking for something.

This is such a cool shot. :)

I remember I once watched a centipede fall into a redback's nest and then get eaten. Took most of an hour! :S

redback?

Yeah. They're spiders. I think they're somehow related to black widows, but basically they're small, shiny and black with a red stripe down their back. Oh, and they're deadly. :)
We get them all the time in summer.

Yeah, they're pretty awesome - especially coz the angrier they get the redder their stripe becomes. They're also freaky, coz they've got fat bodies and spindly legs but they can still get around fast.

Spiders are fascinating creatures. :)
I was bitten by a wolfspider once (while I was trying to transport it to a more hospitable environment - i.e. Outside). Insects are so ungrateful. Since then my fascination has greatly diminished.
