Ants are funny little beasts. On three occasions, they have swarmed out of this crack in the wall to scavenge something edible (I presume.) My first impulse was to get rid of them and then I remembered that Nature is quite often efficient, so I let the ants go. I left my room and when I returned, the wall was quiet empty. The first photo was at 6:01. The second at 6:10. Not bad, Mother Nature!
I have to add that although I am fascinated by Mother Nature, witnessing this before bed is partly why I cannot sleep at night. It’s a little too natural sometimes. Sometimes, I like life watered down and squeaky clean.
