The Last of the Ants
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|These two ants are touching each others antennae. Ants have two (at least) forms of communication: scents (or pheromones) and tactile (touch). They follow the pheromone trails of other ants (and their own) and are in constant contact with one another primarily with their antennae. Ants have the ability to scavenger for food (and defense of colony) far from the colony. They may find their way back by following their own pheromone trail (or that of another colony member) or by little understood mechanisms that utilize the suns rays or in other words, the horizon. The horizon of an ant must be greatly magnified from their "lowly" perspective!|
