Smoking ants

Category: Nature


Photo and caption by Michel Ghantous

These ants were carrying cigarettes over several stairs left by a solder guard post. During the few summer 1912 weeks I was observing them, they cleaned the post from all cigarettes butts. I took several pictures which I will try to include and there is also a video . I am not sure what they were doing with these butts, but I suspect that they were decomposing them in their nest. I am not sure if this is the right place to submit this as is not the quality of the photograph but the funny animal behaviour.

Location: Mashghara, Lebanon
