Ants by Japers Ants by Japers
This image was selected by National Geographic to be featured in their Daily Dozen for the 1st week of August 2010. [link]

I found these two carpenter ants locked in this interesting embrace.. I couldn’t tell if they were fighting, kissing, or passing food along, but I couldn’t resist capturing such a candid moment. I was only able to get two shots and luckily this one came out well. I hope everyone likes it as much as I do.
