miclaud C'est époustouflant et captivant de suivre les actions des fourmis!!! Elles agissent avec une telle ardeur... incroyable!!!

jendayee You won't beleive it !
I did almost the same pics but with jam !!!
The other day I took a magnifying glass to watch them drinking water, as it's dry season. What is funny when you look at them is to see them arriving small and leaving with big bellies !
May be one day I'll post mine, may be... because yours are more neat !
