Nature Photo of the Week: the Ants Go Marching

Look closely. What do you see? Crawling along the base of this basket flower are tiny ants, looking for a sweet afternoon snack. Flickr user borrowedcamera writes, “It’s funny, I didn’t even notice the ants until I got this up on my monitor.” We love this little surprise! Thanks for submitting this photo to The Nature Conservancy’s Flickr group.
