You really should see this in full size... The ants and the roach are sharp enough for a macro shot like this. At least I hope so...

Why? It's almost dead, it can not pump out it's eggs anymore and even if it would: the ants would eat it too. This roach will not spawn itself any further, there's absolutely no danger anymore. What I find fascinating is that ants are some kind of garbage men. I didn't know that they have this kind of job, I always though that cats, mice or birds clean up roaches or other insects...

Thanx losp. Strange, in your words it sounds cruel, but this is life, nature, the way it is...

One big one being attacked by so many little ones : paralyzed,
"tortured", slow dying etc .. Not a sad sight in small view ! .. Yes.
such are their natural styles & ways
