The Aphid Farm Today

I hope these photos are a bit better than the last. The aphid farm is growing huge. The ant nest under the rhubarb is huge. If you step on the grass near the ant nest, you are immediately attacked and bitten by these tiny ants. Tiny spiders seem to be an important part of the aphid farm. When clicked, these photos will open, full size, in a new window.

  1. What a great set of pictures these are.. those Ants must be having a feast for sure with these.

  2. Nature is such a busy place. The dynamics of whats going on is incredible. Very interesting. MB

  3. A feast for the ants indeed. You should also get some ladybirds aboard. They also do a very good job and don't I feel sorry for that wonderful plant!

  4. Looks like an important food source for the ants. Nice photography.

    Patty and I will be celebrating 53 years of marriage on July 12th. Think of it as a long-term relationship.

    I have invited bloggers to offer suggestions on a gift for me to give Patty and the list would not be complete without your ideas.
