Ant kidnapping

An ant holding a larvaLast fall I took this photo of an ant doing I-don’t-know-what. It would appear the pupa needed to be relocated, and by using ant logic they decided to carry it across the patio table.

Just now, while googling “ant life cycle” in search of a clearer image of these creatures, I came across this photo on www.alexanderwild.com. Nice work!

  1. Nice observation, James. Coincidentally, the ant in your picture is exactly the same as in mine: Pseudomyrmex gracilis.
