A couple of weeks ago, I told everyone about a love/hate relationship I have with spiders.
Well, this week, it's another love/hate relationship...this time with ants.
I don't mind ants outside, I don't even mind if they invade my picnics, but not my house! Every spring, I get a convoy of large black ants moving through my abode, looking for something. I do what I can to get rid of them.
But let me cross paths with an ant outside somewhere, and chances are, I'll get my body down as close as I can and do what I can to get a photo.
I know a few things about ants. They used to be wasps, but long ago, lost their wings in favor of hunting on the ground. They live in a very structured society where everyone has a job and everyone does the job they were born to do. And they can get awful angry if they find you standing in the middle of their home. I didn't mean to do it...really...I didn't.
And now for the photos. If you wonder where the name of the ants are, well, I don't know ants all that well, so I won't put a name on them here. I'll just show you the photos.
I hope you enjoyed my post this week. If you would like to see more Camera Critters, just drop by the website here and then join in the fun with an entry of your own.
