Look at those ladies work,work, work!! Good save their Queen mother. Did you know that only desert ants are " bearded"? They have a special "hair basket" under their chin that helps move sand. Did you know that every ant is a female until the hive determines it's time to mate? Did you know that some sonoran desert ants are polymorphic? They have varying sizes depending on their role. It is the hive and the type of care for the pupae that determines the outcome. PS: Ants are actually seriously cool. Stop killing them if they're outside doing their thing. #tinydetails #naturelover #naturephotography #sonorandesert #nature #spring #desert #ants #antsarecool #savethemall #savetheants
