My nominee for the bug Darwin award...the brain sucker......

OK, here's a twist on the circle of life thing.

At first glance this is just an ordinary day in the "bug sucks out other bug's brain" world.

Nothing unusual going on here.
...........or soooo it seems..........

The unseen thing is that the sucking bug died in this act.

Seems to me that the little bug getting sucked had a toxic brain.
The big sucker bug expired. Here you see his last meal.

I suspect that the death by-toxic-brain acted to protect many other brethren bugs. nominee for the little buggy-Darwin award goes to the sucker-bug. He died, while the little guy gave his all for the protection of his species.

Fascinating.....this Circle-of-Life/Darwin stuff.

Gee Vernon, what's a predator to do, when you can't have a meal of nice warm brains without committing bug-a-cide??

Nice pic.
