A giant destroyed my nest!

Myrmica ants carrying their larvae to safety after a careless human (that'd be me) decided to sweep the terrace - and uncover their nest. That had been hidden underneath a big fallen leaf, and when I saw the white larvae, I ran and got my camera. Half a minute later, a large number of the larvae had already been carried off underground. Very efficient, these little guys! Or gals, rather.
