David and Goliath

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:

One word : Wonderful *.*
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

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.

sounds awesome!!!
Caileagh-Faoileag's avatar
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.

:) i like lookin at spiders :)
got a few poisoness ones around here

[link] this cave was filled with daddy long legs.. the friendly, creepy spiders:D

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.

lol.. i kill stuff like that.. no need in saving it if its that close to me
