Hahaha, i love this Birdy. I have observed a lot of ants and how they eat and work, and different species of ants have different lifestyles also. But it is difficult to document if we don't have proper lenses, i hope i can do some of these too. I have one of those too, ants with earthworm. I love to observe them hauling a big food to their colony.
