On Wednesday, when it alternated between furnace hot then heavy thunderstorms,
I managed to get a few hours up at the walled garden
where I have the happy pleasure of volunteering at.
I was weeding, where the weeds were rather enthusiastically
managed to organise a 'flash-mob' swamping the juvenile vegetables.
I was busily hoe-ing as I created a mini dust storm at my feet
when suddenly I exposed these little busy fellows.....
I felt bad that I'd disturbed them and then when I noticed this activity going on....
Which, lets be honest, made me feel even more of a monster!
The worker ants quickly bundled up the cocoons and larvae and
marched away with their precious juveniles.
So, as a way of an apology,
I sprinkled some of my bread crumbs
and carefully watered near by so the ants could have a lunch break during maneuvers,
which they did!
By the time I'd finished working,
the ants and their precious cargo had all disappeared.
#30DaysWild - have you got up to any 'antics' recently?
