    Today is the first really warm day here in holland in a long time. Now while that is totally great, it can be gross too cause a whole colony of flying ants decided to hatch under my nose in my garden. Ugh, I hate the little buggers. Anyway, in exterminating them I got a little help. Don't you just love spiders? This one has his fangs buried pretty deeply in a caught ant. The pic isn't as sharp as I would want to *I was on bare feet and ants kept crawling over my toes EEEEP!*

    Wow. It's just hard to capture a moment like this without waiting like those people who make documentry films.

    NICE shot but EWWWWWWW!!!! Not that I've got room to talk. When my photography professor in college insisted on "no cute animals" I immediately enlisted a friend to watch for traffic for me and took shots of road kill!

    I hate spiders but I hate ants more. Get 'em. :)

    Good picture. Especially for how fast you had to take it.

    Nice shot. I am not a great fan of spiders either but I certainly like them much more than ants.
