Wordless Wednesday: Pogonomyrmex rugosus carrying what?

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.

  1. Looks like it might percieve that little shard of glass as a pebble with which to adorn its nest mound.

  2. You all have come up with some very good ideas. Now I really wish I had stopped to pick it up.
