Fascinating, but ewww!

I took this photo a couple of weeks ago, with no intention of ever sharing it — who’d want to see it? So thank you, Ed, for the challenge of Creepy Things! I was both fascinated and repelled by the sight of hundreds of ants devouring a dead spider; it was like a nature documentary, right on my windowsill.
