Weak Ant vs. Strong Ant

August 9th 2010, Pennsburg PA



I was sitting around watching ants on the walkway, and noticed a large ant struggling to move a honey bee. Presumably it wanted to drag the bee back to the colony, for all the ants to snack on. It struggled mightily. It heaved and hoed, pushed and shoved, crawled all over the bee, tried every conceivable angle and grip, and could manage only to move the bee an inch or so at a time, in various haphazard directions, before it would let go and try a different approach. Finally, after several minutes of struggle, it gave up and scuttled off.

I didn't think too much of it, and figured that the bee was just too big for an ant to move.



Then a minute later, this little shit ant marched up, grabbed the bee in one purposeful move, and dragged the bee fairly swiftly in a straight line, several feet, off into the lawn, and I'm guessing, eventually to the colony.

I scowled and shook my head and scratched my ear and muttered and walked off.
