While in Salter Path, North Carolina on vacation we saw this grasshopper, which was already dead, being carried away by countless ants. Â You can’t tell from this photo alone but there was a line of thousands upon thousands of ants leading from the grasshopper back to the ant hill.
The speed at which the ants were carrying the grasshopper was impressive. Â At once point the ants came upon anÂ obstacleÂ and managed to turn the grasshopper all the way around in order to get around it. Â They did this in a matter of seconds.
Nature always amazes me.
