Ready to Bite

Ready to Bite

Last image of ants for this month.

I took this picture the other day. I was trying to find a good subject for my Project 365 picture, when a car passed by the street, making stay near our neighbor's house. I noticed they had a beautiful hibiscus plant, different than ours, and in my hopes of taking a good macro shot of the pistil and the stamen, I noticed their hibiscus plant was infested with ants, too! I shoot different pictures of the ants, and this one stood out because this little fellow might have felt violated, hence he was up on his guard to protect his territory.

Well, I am not really trying to disturb them... right? =)
