The Mighty Ant

The kids spotted this little guy on our front porch the other day. He was heaving with all of his might to get a bee back to his nest no doubt.

He dragged him across our porch up a post and down the other side. This shot is him heading down the post. So interesting to sit and watch. We humans would never go to that great feat simply for a meal. One day we may have but certainly not now.

Wow. It always amazes me how strong ants are! I forget what the exact number is that they can carry/drag (some amount times their own body weight...), but it is impressive.
