STOPS ALONG THE WAY

THE ANT AND THE PEONY

27 Comments

In June when the peonies begin to bud the ants arrive in droves. The buds secrete a sap that attracts the ants. Once the flowers bloom the ants disappear with no harm done to the plants. I had my 105mm the day I took this photo, I had hoped for some flower shots and got a “twofer” instead!

  2. You can even see a little glistening of the sap on the peony head. I really like this photo a lot, Belinda. There’s something real AND surreal about it.
