The work of fire ants

Fire ants do a great job of stitching up leaves. Somewhere in the midst of all these leaf-homes is the queen ant. For more interesting information on what these ants do to the leaves, check out my post from last year.

My entry to the upcoming Festival Of The Trees.- go to the link for a picture of the very interesting looking Banana Slug.

Amazing. Never knew that these ants could make such nests!

Just a guess, but I think your common name "fire ant' is a different kind of ant than is called fire ant in other parts of the world.
