Spotted these ants ripping apart this small piece of bone.

Thanks Emmanuel and Don, I appreciate your comments. Emmanuel - No, I do not have a close up lens. That was on macro mode, camera held quite close to the ants and I was holding breath to avoid even the minutest shake. A lot of pp went in to produce this final pic - cropping/contrast/sharpening with Picasa, noise removal with Neat Image and bordering with Gimp.

Thanks Annie and Ronny. They did not break the bone, but just devoured everything sticking to it and finally left it - what should I say = bone dry!

Raghu, that is one very nice photo. I tried to get one of an anthill, but couldn't get enough light. Also good job on the PP.
