    ...only a bit smaller. Its real good fun to see the ants take care of the little insects like they are cows
    Here one of the ants is eating some honeydew

    This ant was about to relocate one of his "cows". First he has to get it from its place though

    Thank you :)
    Offcourse im at it again, im addicted to macro these days. Also ordered some belows and give stacking a shot. Should be awesome (well not the first tries, those are gonna be horrible) And thanks for the reply :)
    Like Chris mentioned, these are aphids. People never want them in the garden, since they can destroy the pretty flowers. But when i can get shots like these im willing to sarcrifise my mothers garden and put a colony of these in her garden ;) Thanks for the comment.
    Thank you very much :)
    Yeah, the ants are really hard workers and the keep the aphids in good shape. Thanks :)
