Comments:
The ant was 6 mm head to body rear. The fly was 9 mm head to body rear. I found this on a concrete slab in front of a townhouse door. The ant was dragging the dead fly. I let the ant crawl into an empty peanut butter jar. As you can see from the photos, the ant would not drop the fly. I took the ant/fly home in the jar and the ant dropped the fly sometime during that trip. When I got home I photographed the ant separately.
