Show us ants in their natural environment, (either one or many). Get up close and personal, but try not to get bitten.... :-) The ant/ants should be outside, not under studio lights. Keep the background of your entry intact so we can see how the little fellows live and work. Interesting information about your ants would also be appreciated. SIZE DOES MATTER: See below!

Ant milking aphids for their honeydew. Often, another ant would arrive and take the droplet from the worker. Some say that the ants protect the aphids from predators. Also, without the ants, the plant would be covered in honeydew that would allow black mould to grow that could harm the plant.
