Ant-mimic spiders

There seem to be quite a number of this around my place. Yesterday I spotted one with what appeared to be prey and looks like an ant queen (or drone?).



An online survey of literature indicates that they do not normally feed on ants!

My Nikon Coolpix E3700 (3.2 Megapixel) produces a sharper image than a Panasonic FZ100 (14 Megapixel) - but then the subject does not fill the screen in the new camera even at the macro setting and seems to need an extra lens to really utilize the sensor size.
