Description

While walking along the Carson River, looking for dragonflies, I came upon a large leaf covered with wood ants, tending to their aphids. As soon as I started shooting, they went into defense mode and started herding in their "cattle." They also sent other ants to leaves closer to me, ostensibly either to find out what I was doing or try to bully me into leaving. :)
