Default ANTics!

On my recent holiday in the Algarve I watched these ants carrying a piece of onion across a patio. I wonder if they were going to eat it? I did not hang around to see where they ended up with the onion. Strong little creatuures aren't they?

The social life of ants and their abilities are amazing.

Interesting photos.
