    Cicada Munch

    Stepped outside my door this morning to feed the cat and lo and behold their was a hive (nest?) of activity at my feet. Some ants engorging themselves on a cicada so I thought that I'd attempt to film them with my phone.

    I used an old Buzzy Bee as a camera stand as it was the closest thing to hand that was fit for purpose. Video is in real time. Goes out of focus a little as they edge the carcass closer to the camera and then I reposition.

    Well no, the ant highway leads down the stairs and when I next emerged they'd moved it completely the opposite way. I lost interest after that so who knows where it is now.

    If only humans had a work ethic like ants do.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms
