Carlo was being particularly quiet, so I decide to go check to see what he was doing. He had found some ants in the house. I got the camera to take some pictures, because he shares my love for bugs, and the light was pretty.I love shadows and soft light.
The reason they were in the house was Carlo left them some food for them on the window sill. Then I remembered this pin my sister-in-law found, about how this guy gave some ants colored sugar water and because their abdomens are translucent the food coloring changes the color of the ant's abdomen.You can not trust everything on pinterest, so I had to try it out for myself to see if it works. These are not fire ants, which are from the devil, these are just red ants. I do not know if it works with fire ants. I do not plan to find out either.
This one is my favorite because he drank the green sugar water first, so you can see the colors mixing in his abdomen. Pretty sweet if you ask me.
