See the ants....

I had gotten out my camera to take a picture of the spider seen here and decided to take a few more.  The peony is slow blooming this year.  I did not notice ALL these ants till I focused in on it.  I knew there were a few on it, but did not dream there was this many.

I cropped the photo in Picasa, and thought to hit the infrared filter and the above is the result.  Click to expand the view and tell me which you think the ants are more noticeable.

Lots of ants - I feel they show up better in the colored version.

Ants and Peonies seem to go together. I like and notice the ants more on the first shot. Funny that Peonies exude a small amount of nectar that attract the ants.
Nature is wonderful.
Love your Iris in the previous post. Like the cow with the top knot--reminds me of the character Alfalfa too.

GORGEOUS picture!!!! You did wonderfully! Did you know that peonies will not open up unless the ants eat at the outside of the bud. They both work together. The ants get food, and in the process the peony blooms.

Oh my goodness, those ants really like your peonies don't they? Wonderful close-ups Rose and I like that black and one one also.

That is a fantastic closeup! We are getting a few ants in the house. I think the rains are driving them inside.
