A: Do you know?

There were several ants on this leaf, which I dropped into the pool; looks like this ant is trying to decide whether to sink or swim.
Special note to PETA: no ants were harmed in the making of this photo.

    Ants pretty much take things in stride. "Oh damn, we're in the pool."

    Oh my.., now you have to reassure PETA that the ants are OK? Love this shot nd your story and have to admit to being an ant killer (they were trying to live in the frame of our house).

    If PETA knew what happens to ants at my house, they would smear me with honey and stake me over a fireant bed. This is a great shot of an ant stranded on a leaf, and using its limited intelligence to try to find a solution. Excellent macro, Susan.
