Dinner time

Post by Gordon C. Snelling »

Last summer while running my blacklight, this little hopping spider decided it was time to eat. The snack in thsi case is an alate queen of Solenopsis xyloni.

Good find (on your part and the spider's)...She didn't even have time to shed her wings!

Looks as though the spider is rolling the ant up in a ball. Goes to show that the size of ones combatant isn't always as important as one might think. Good predation shot Gordon. :D
