The day of the ant - # 08/119

Ants are invading and exploring our kitchen, and leaving piles of fine earth all over the door step, and even swimming across water to taste food left in a basin surrounded by water. The ants are heaving and hauling and working very hard.

So, with this little "hand-held" macro shot, I hail the ant.....and hope it will soon go away. It's worth clicking on the photo to see enlarge it and see the ant's little eyes.


  1. One ant is OK (I saw the eyes), ... hundreds or thousands is a bit worrying!

    The squirrel is really clever!

  2. I like the photo and the composition but what interests me most is the pattern of the seed heads - and how this connects us with Fabrizio's Torino Daily Photo. Answers on a postcard please (to chuckeroon)

  3. @richard........I checked. Well spotted. The seed rings grow more fascinating as you look.
    Fabrizio's tunel:

  4. Hi Chuckeroon! Sorry for the speedy visit! I’ve been busy the whole last week and will be out in the next, so this is far less than your blog deserves… ;(( But I promise I’ll come back with more time after June 10th, at least…
    Anyhow, the ant looks great!
    However, to avoid leaving you deserted, I published a last post on Marrakesh 2006 at Blogtrotter. Enjoy!

  5. yuck! hope you get rid of the ants.....
