Q: Why am I not given the option to nominate a person for member of the week?

A: Do you know?

While preparing to mow, I moved some boards and inadvertently broke open an ant nest. As the workers scurried to remove their young to safety, I got several shots. Here, the pupa of a princess ant (much larger than her attendants) is carried away. The nest was full of winged prince and princess ants preparing for their nuptial flight.

    Thank you, Donald! Wish the photo could have been better focused throughout, but those are the limitations of my macro lens (photo is uncropped). Plus, they never stopped moving.

    Thank you, James and Leslie! Yes, teamwork -- within a few minutes the great majority of ants had dispersed.
