FIELD ANTS

On a recent turkey hunt, I sat next to an old stump. Petals from Choke Cherry trees were falling like snow from an adjacent clear-cut.

Next to me in the leaf litter  I noticed a small ant carrying one of the petals.

I’ve often seen leaf-cutter ants carrying pieces of leaves to their  nest but never flower petals.
