Forelius Foragers: Always a Crowd

I was going to take a photograph of a desert willow flower for another of my blogs, when I noticed some ant activity.

Forelius worker ants were all over one cluster of flowers.

As far as I could tell, they were only visiting this one cluster out of probably fifty nearby.

It would have been interesting to find out more, but I had to run (story of my life).

I have seen Forelius streaming up and down trees. They seem to forage in crowds.

What do you think?

  1. Definitely good at rrecruiting numbers to good food sources.
    And the flower, Chilopsis? (just guessing)
