antlion nests

antlion larvae dig holes at the maximum angle of repose... which i actually learned about in geotechnical engineering. they wait for unsuspecting ants to wander by, fall in, and be devoured. supposedly during the full moon cycle. i took these pictures on new years eve day [blue moon no less].

discuss amongst yourselves.
