I came along an ant colony while I was weeding.

There were thousands and thousands of teeny, tiny ants busy with something.

They came up out of this hole between rocks placed along the edge of the pavement.

Ant colonies always remind me about the part of "The Once and Future King" when Merlin turns Wart into an ant.  I'm glad I'm not an ant.

This ant measures about 3/16 of an inch long in life size! It's big head and mandibles cause me to believe that it's a worker/soldier ant.
