Red ant (Formica spp.)

i’m so angry at my work situation that i could scream. instead, i’m going to show you a film i took on saturday during a hike with Oats, my lover, who was less than thrilled with my enthusiasm for this natural wonder at the side of the trail:

personally, i love a good swarm.

seeing as the film’s rather blurry, here are some stills for your enjoyment:
