photographing and learning about wildlife
Each year in early June fire ants with wings start swarming. They will fly up into the air allowing a breeze to move them to a new location to start a new colony. We first notice hundreds of winged fire ants floating on the surface of the pool. We have a cedar wood bench and a cedar bridge that they just love. The pictures are of a portion of the wood bench.
The bench is next to a koi pond and a butterfly habitat.
