Really like that carpenter ant and the tree hopper. Hoppers take on some of the most amazing morphologies. Now those last images of the trap jaw ants are really interesting. Darwin, I would assume after the fuss that he made over Ichneumon wasps and cats playing with mice, would be appalled at these, however like a large number of other things in nature, they show the brutality of life in the wild. Of course not mentioning the brutality that man welds against his fellow man in what we call civilized interactions.

Thanks Mark, Ken and razashaikh,most appreciated.

Ken, I think that parasitization holds a place of particular revulsion and fascination in the human psyche. The trapjaw ants are purely predatory, and splendidly adapted to such, so I'm not sure that he would have been appalled, but perhaps, rather awed at the adaptations.
