Well, after hunting these buggers all over the yard, this one turns up in my kitchen the other day. He's larger than the ones I see in the shrubs. I took a few shots of him and brought him outside where he feasted on ants on my picnic table.

#2 - Got an ant. These are tiny little ants. Much smaller than the fire ants I'm used to seeing.

#3 - Cramming it in! I'm not sure how he's balanced here!

Nice and sharp shots. Did you tell him he had to finish his dinner or he would get no dessert?

Thanks, Hiroshi.

I think what he left behind was just the empty 'wrapper'. I watched him do that to several poor little ants before I decided to stop harassing him.

Thanks for viewing!

#2 and #3 are amazing shots! I've never seen a jumper go for an ant before, around here I have only seen them eating flies. maybe the next time a jumper jumps on my lens or flash I'll drop it off near an ant hill to see what happens.
