Ant Dinner Is Served!

We spotted a long trail of red ants along a wooden mangrove trail inside Pasir Ris park one fine humid night last year 2011. And this is the macro shot I got. I actually got lots of these shots pretty up close. I think these ants were feasting on a carcass of a poor caterpillar of unknown species of butterfly or moth.

 

The ants look voracious here, nibbling on any part of the caterpillar's body.
