It's just another Macro Monday!

  Come take a walk with me through the websites of four photographers who are sharing their love of macro photography every other Monday throughout the year.  We shoot what we love, what makes us happy,  to hone our skills,  to stretch our minds and our imaginations, and because it's who we are!

"The ants go marching one by one, hurrah, hurrah 
The ants go marching one by one, hurrah, hurrah 
The ants go marching one by one, 
The little one stops to suck his thumb 
And they all go marching down to the ground  
To get out of the rain, BOOM! BOOM! BOOM!"






One day last week my son told me that there ants in the candy bowl in my family and in my dining room, which is on the other side of the house.
No where in between, though.
I found one ant in the candy bowl, dumped the candy in the trash, and washed out the bowl.  My son took care of the ants in my dining room.
Problem solved, or so I thought.
A few days later I threw a bag of Tootsie Rolls in the bowl in the family room.   
Over the next couple of days I ate a Tootsie Roll or two, until Thursday.  On Thursday, I ate a Tootsie Roll and thought it tasted kinda funny.  I grabbed another Tootsie Roll, unwrapped it, popped it in my mouth, started chewing, and screamed when I realized it wasn't just a Tootsie Roll.
Yep, you guessed it...the ants were back.  
I get ants every spring. No big deal.
 A few on the kitchen counters.  Maybe a couple around the dogs bowl.  
We treat the perimeter of the house.  
The ants disappear.   
Now, that I'm positive, or at least fairly certain, I may have ingested some of these little creatures ( I still have this funny feeling in the back of my throat when I look at these pictures) I am on an all out mission to rid my house of their presence. 
I realized after I calmed down that an opportunity had just presented itself to me and I grabbed my camera.  
This is the last I hope to see of these things!
