Photo and caption by Alan Price

The Wood ants nest that has been on my land for many years has been a great subject to photograph. In this image a single worker ant has come across a spent Crane fly. Balancing on two legs she is making sure the prey is safe to strip down before alerting others in the colony.

Location: Nantlle, Caernarfon, Gwynedd, N Wales, UK
