On my back deck, I saw a swarm of ants crawling over a seemingly dead spider. I got out my macro lens to get some closeup shots of the gruesome scene.
I added a photo to my gallery of Nature Photos & uploaded the video to my YouTube channel, MonkeyBuddhaVids.
At one point, I saw the spider's legs contract, but I'm not sure if that was because it was still alive or not. In the second half of the video, the ants are trying to rip one of the spider's back legs out.
