Posted on August 15, 2012August 3, 2012 by RobertaWordless Wednesday: Pogonomyrmex rugosus carrying what? I always like to see what ants are collecting during foraging trips. Sometimes it isn’t easy to identify. Tree resin? Hard candy? What do you think it is? And no, I didn’t have the opportunity to collect it and see.

A piece of resin from a tree?
Was it licking it as it went along? 😀
Looks like it might percieve that little shard of glass as a pebble with which to adorn its nest mound.
Or maybe it found the beer residue to its liking. 😉
You all have come up with some very good ideas. Now I really wish I had stopped to pick it up.
