13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World

Tree ant workers tear apart a chunk of cricket. While clearing a dead tree off my property I noticed I had accidentally displaced a colony of Psuedomyrmex. I took the branch inside and gave them a cricket abdomen to eat while I photographed them.
