I don’t even know what you call this thing . . an ant mound?
This is one of those times when my photo totally fails but it was so neat, I’m sharing anyway. Vince and I were at a local business and I looked down and this ant “structure” was so neat. It stood about 5″ tall and wasn’t much bigger around than a quarter. It was so neat and I’ve never seen anything like it.
The background, that looks like tan concrete is dirt . . hard, dry, impacted dirt in an area that needs rain so badly! That ant structure was amazing.
When I take pictures of things like this, I always think . . if those ants knew I was taking a picture of their handiwork, and sharing it with blog readers from far and wide they would be so impressed! Probably not . . they’d probably be saying . . just go away and leave us alone.
It really was neat and I’m sorry my picture doesn’t show more of what it really looked like but . . use your imagination please.
