Desert Ant

Cataglyphis fortis


These tiny ants were all over - more than could possibly be counted because they were everywhere I looked. Small and black with a raised and pointed tail section that gives this ant a very menacing look.


Dry, arid desert. In this case the Giza Plateau, dodging tourists.
