well taken this photo, the little explorers in a world too large for them to really understand... aren't they a little like us too?

keep well...

A lot of people dislike ants yet over here they keep the aphid population down. Delightful photo!

bart: i suppose this is the only world they know and must be fine with it. an individual means nothing for them... ah, there you have it... a bit like humans indeed :)

janice: well, from what i know, ants actually help expand the aphids... they protect, not destroy them.
ladybirds are aphids' sworn enemies, though
thank you

Great image. Caught in the act! Sometimes I feel like your blog is a nature documentary with all the pictures but none of the distracting (although often interesting and educational) voice over!

thank you, jem. i mostly just try to record what i see... and most of the stuff is from my immediate surroundings
