Teeny, tiny, happy ants. “I am in pollen heaven, round and round we go!” Dahlia.
Now this is quite a predicament! “Lucky the leaf came by.” Monarda.
But this is much worse. “Help me!!!! I was plucked right up in the leaf litter.” Concolor. (You will see more from this shoot. Robins are building in my Concolor right outside my office.)
“Where the heck is that colony when you need them. Sending out pheromones. Anybody out there? Can you hear me now?”
“Should I take the dive? I am not a strong swimmer. I hear we can hold our breath for a long time, but I am not interested in finding out if that is true “
“Looks a little shallower over here, but still not willing to risk it. Let’s look from another vantage point.”
“I see land.”
“Ahoy, water bug , can you lend a hand?”
“So close, yet so far.”
“Oh, the futility of it all.”
“How the heck did I get in this mess?”
Teeny tiny, happy ant.” Peony.
“Oh yes, getting high on peony nectar, life is good, but it has its pitfalls.”
“And this is how I fell, drunken, into the bird bath, funneled right in, but boy was that peony nectar good stuff.”
Oh, I’m feeling blue.
I wrote a more informative post on ants previously and thought you may not have seen it since it was very long ago. It is a very popular post on searches and I decided to leave the link in this post. Carpenter Ants.
