Florida Carpenter Ant killing a White Footed Ant - Camponotus planatus

Florida Carpenter Ant killing a White Footed Ant - Camponotus planatus
Palm Beach County, Florida, USA
July 8, 2012
While baiting an ant trail I noticed that one of the big ants was killing the little ants, but not eating them. I think that the big ants are Florida Carepenter Ants, and that the little ants are White Footed Ants. I'll submit a closeup of each in a moment. Here's the best picture I was able to get of the action.
