These photos were taken in July when I was looking around a hotel garden. I noticed an ant on one of the plants. These photos were taken with my cell phone (beginning and the last) The next two photos are cropped versions of the top photo.
The following is not too sharp but I was fascinated with the hair growth on this ant. It never having crossed my mind before that ants actually had hair! Blogging can send you in some very interesting directions, and if you are interested in the life cycle of an ant, you can click here.
This was the plant it was enjoying. It is called Painted Nettle. If you click on the link it will show you photos of its blooms. Very pretty!
"I think everybody should study ants. They have an amazing four-part philosophy. Never give up, look ahead, stay positive and do all you can."
Thanks for looking and enjoy your day.
