Ant fight

These are not the best photographs I have taken as there was too much moving around.

Once again I have observed that it is always the smaller ants which attack the larger ones and I am wondering why this is as one would think it should be the other way around. I could even understand if was a whole lot of small ants attacking thee, but no, it is always just one??

The difference of sizes is amazing! The small ant must be a real killer!

I could not believe that it would win this fight Jose and yet it did. No wonder I find nature so fascinating.

The small one did Gaelyn. I think that maybe it was a case of the bigger ant getting weary first and the smaller having more stamina. DOes not seem like a fair fight does it?
