Mob Rule

Yesterday I saw some ants on a gravel road.  I don’t know the species but I am guessing Formica obscuripes.  As near as I can tell a number of workers are holding down and killing another worker of the same species.

But I don’t know.  Ants have interactions that I don’t understand.

And the world goes on.

    Great photo! Ants are fascinating, and I often wonder how many species are in my garden — at least five I think.
