Long Legged Lunch

32nd place (joint)
Long legged fly munching on some very small creature. These flies are roughly 4-5 mm long, so I'm guessing his lunch buddy is well under 1mm. Actually, I thought I was taking pictures of long legged flies that day. I had no idea it was eating until I saw it later on my computer screen.
