Yesterday the basil plant on the back porch looked like this:
The rover ants were foraging like crazy.
It isn't common to see so many on one plant.
Where are the nectaries in basil flowers? What are these ants doing?
In any case, the story was very different this morning.
This is the same flower, taken this morning.
As you may have heard, the Phoenix area had quite a dust storm last night.
Wonder where the rover ants are today...
