[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The dead ladybug on our front step provides the ants with an easy meal. This ant is biting his way through to the good stuff on the inside.


The bug was about 1cm long (excluding the wings). The flash fired since it was early evening. I also cropped slightly in photoshop.

This is an interesting shot Reiner..Great POV of the "deceased" ;-) Cool title with good detail and colors. Thank You!

Hi Reinier,
The situation seems to be spectacular - but the quality is horrible.
PoV and exposure are very good.

I would like to see a better virsion.

Good macro. Red step a lttile disturbing, but still a good close-up of dead bug and ant.

Gross..... looks like one ant is inside snacking already!
