Starting out the day as breakfast for another critter is about as bad as it gets, I would think. But the blepharisma that you saw in the previous image (or perhaps a near relative - I had seen several a few days earlier) is seen again here. Unfortunately, it's in the stomach of a hideous-looking, hairy glassworm or ghostworm. I could see the Blepharisma squirming in the microscope, but its shape appears distorted, so I suspect the end was near.
