From the I never expected to see that department.
After twenty minutes of chasing grasshopper nymphs, I noticed this happening under some nearby blades of grass.
As far as I could tell, this little brown ant had drawn the short straw and got the job of disposing of the body of a would-be queen. No pomp and circumstance here, just a lot of pulling and pushing on whatever body parts happened to be convenient.
We'll come back to the deceased sometime in the future...
Thanks for stopping to take a look.
