Ant Carrying a Wasp Head - Formica subsericea

Ant Carrying a Wasp Head - Formica subsericea
Neuse River, Croatan National Forest, Craven County, North Carolina, USA
April 14, 2006

Moved
Easy, because F. subsericea is the only pubescent, black Formica in the Southeast. In the northern tier or the western mountains, the situation would be rather more difficult.

Anyway, I think this would be considered quite a nice picture, even if it weren't a rushed job.

Great action shot!

Cool photo!
Strong little buggers! Great shot!

 
Thanks
It looks like a body builder! I wish I could have gotten a better shot, but it was on the move and I only had time for a couple of quick ones.
