so yesterday i'm sitting out in the back yard and a bright red winged ant lands on the novel i'm reading. i notice it appears to have a stinger and i'm watching it carefully when it pulls up it's back legs and pulls its own wings off. i suspect this must be a new queen looking to form a colony so i run and get my camera. and macro. and flash. and. well, she's so fast i can't get a single photo of her before she digs a little hole in the ground and is gone.
sad sad sad. i'm sure andipants will agree.
