The insect world is a weird, wonderful, and wildly violent place to exist in. Spiders and insects use a variety of different methods to eat each other, and photographer Nicky Bay has captured many of these in some truly excellent photographs.
I find the assassin bug shown here fascinating. They decorate themselves with the corpses of their consumed prey, which acts as a gruesome shield, an olfactory camouflage (masking the scent of the bug), and allows them to infiltrate the strongholds of ants, thereby getting more prey.
Weird, wonderful, and wildly violent. Onwards!
