Caption: This doughnut-shaped structure is an ordinary anthill seen closeup. The actual ants are so tiny and colored so similarly to the particles of dirt they're carrying out that they're difficult to see in this picture, but close examination reveals there's a stream of them along each edge of the hole. This time of year ant populations are reaching their peak, and swarming time is near. Some day after a warm rain, the sky will be filled with millions of tiny winged ants on their nuptial flight.
