Amazon - Jumping Spider With Prey With it's own Prey & F

Post by crotermund »

This was one of those lucky moments where you take a picture and find out later on about the bonus creatures in the picture. I'm not sure what the insect in the ant's mouth was or what the flies thought they had to gain by hanging out. Perhaps they were hoping the ant would drop his dinner when he became dinner?

Looks as though everyone is getting their butt chewed but the spider. A really great capture Craig, talk about being at the right place at the right time, it really paid off. :D

I think this may set a new record for "largest number of starring roles in a macro photograph".

A very interesting scene, well captured -- thanks for sharing! :D
