Cycle of Life!




I found this moth already decapitated with these ants partaking on whatever remnants will still be useful in their colony. They will chop-chop the whole moth according to the size they will be able to jointly carry to their sanctuary underground. And that is the food chain, food web, or the cycle of life. I wonder if there is also a butterfly or moth haven to accommodate them!

This is Straight out of Camera for Sunday - SOOCS!

  4. It looks like it was caught in a spider's web. I wonder if a spider took the first bite.

  6. looks like the edible and palatable part is the thorax and abdomen. They'll probably leave the wings alone since it is only membrane and powder or scales. Good capture.

  9. I know it is the circle of life ---but that doesn't mean that we have to like it.... I worry about my sweet little backyard birds ---when the hawks are around... But--there's not much I can do about it... I'm sure it's a hard life for all of the critters out there.


    Happy Sunday to you.
    Hugs,
    Betsy

    That's how it is in nature, one is food for another. Yours.

  11. I guess that the creepy crawly ants have to eat too. The beauty and ugliness of that circle of life are here. A great capture!
