Day 152, ant on peony

I watched the ants as they worked the peonies’ petals. Every peony bud had an ant on it. Some were working; some were just sitting on one of the lower leaves.

If I had a micro lens, I’ll bet I could have seen their little lunch boxes and iPods.

  1. I think there’s a sweet nectar on the unopened buds that the ants like. I don’t think they actually help to open the flowers, as some people say.
