photographing and learning about wildlife
At 2:00 p.m. in the afternoon, I walked over to the glass windows, that was to the left of the front door. I saw a black ant, resting on one of the window panes. This ant, was one fourth of an inch long. This ant, was all black in color. This ant, had two antennae, two compound eyes, two mandibles, six jointed legs, etc. Phylum: Arthropoda Class: Insecta Order: Hymenoptera Family: Formicidae.
Black ants can have two very different habitats. When they are outdoors, they live in a location that is comfortable and close to a food supply. When they have to move indoors, they try to find a location that is similiar to the one they had outdoors.
I spotted this black ant, resting on a pane of glass, at 2:00 p.m. in the afternoon.
