The ant, the fly, the flying ant
#1 Ant mimic spider with it’s nest. Master architect at work!
#2 A normal ant
#3 Spotted this poor ant with only 1 wing wandering around aimlessly. It was quite dark so I used a long exposure to capture a brighter background.
#4 The other side of the ant, you can see the wound where it’s wing used to be
Actually, only some ants in each colony will have wings, and they venture out to mate and form new colonies. The queen would shed it’s wings after settling down to start the new colony. Some or most may fail, like this one.
#6 Hoverfly in flight, with a strand of what looks like a web behind???
#7 Creeping up from behind
