[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Here we have two insects working together. These ants actually protect these green scales and insure that they are not harmed. You may ask why? The reason is because the green scales will suck out the trees sap and in the process create a sweet nectar that the ants love. If you can think of two other animals that work together in a similar way... please share.

Hello Elena,
A very educational image of these tiny ants interacting with the green scale insects. I have heard about this interacting so it's nice to finally see it in action.
Focus is a tad soft, so hopefully you don't mind me doing a WS.

WOW i never knew that Elena! Well done! :) love the workshop by Ron too! I think maybe he used NEAT processing
