      The ant is either crazy or has a friendly arrangement with the spider. Great shot.

      Maybe the ant found the one spot that the spider can't reach. Though I can't remember details, I seem to remember reading about a creature that preys on scorpions using such a weakness.

      Great capture!

      Thanks for the likes and comments, everyone, much appreciated :)

      Bulucanagria - actually, the ant was all over the spider. It's typical for most huntsman to just freeze and not move at all. Once threatened, they will start running but when cornered, they will just freeze.
