A lonely princess on her own to find and build a kingdom of her own.
This picture gives me the feeling of new beginnings and a wonder to the unknowns we all face in our lives. Who knows what ever happened to this little queen to be. Hopefully she was able to find a nice, quiet pine to begin her life and start her colony. This photo was taken was taken on a cloudy day in an open field covered in dandelions and spring flowers, surrounded by a forest of spruce and pine. There weren’t many birds around during this time so I like to imagine she was successful. This is a Wood Ant (formica polyctena).
