Caption

Harvester ant (Messor hebraeus). Macrophotograph of a harvester ant carrying a seed. Harvester ants specialise in gathering different types of seeds. The ants travel in single file in two-lane "highways" - one lane returning to the nest whilst the other consists of ants looking for more seeds. The seeds may be stored for several months in underground chambers before being eaten.
