United States

Derived from a pine tree next to our house that is infested with ants. They are feasting on its bark and have made a nest inside. We have decided to have it removed.

I was wrong. The ants do have a nest inside, but the damage to the tree is from squirrels climbing up and down.
Best if viewed at original size. (Sept 3).

Best if viewed at original size.

Excellent light to add depth to the details. Interesting that you added ants and squirrels in the your life (my life) category. V

Very interesting, we don´t have here these species of ants to eat a whole tree!

Ants are industrious! Nice light on the situation.

Probably a good idea to move them on their way. Lots of texture going on here...
Barbara Heide02-Sep-2010 23:13
lovely textures andtones!
J. Scott Coile02-Sep-2010 22:43
Good decision. Probably a whole cycle of things going on in there.
Cindi Smith02-Sep-2010 22:38
Good idea since you can get stung by those. Loe the textures, lines and light! Great picture!

Ants will use a lot of different places to start their colonies. Clever and intriguing insects.
