ants are hungry and strong

Well, as I mentioned before, Sydney is unlike beautiful Boston without any annoying insects.

I killed a fly with as fly swatter the other day. About 20 minutes later, I saw a colony of ants gathering around the fly.

The ants must be hungry.

(one more photo follows...)

I turned away for about two minutes, and when I looked back, I was surprised by what happened.

The ants had moved carried the fly away (about 5 cm). I did not know ants were so strong.

Well, sorry for the ugly floor, it isn't as beautiful as beautiful Boston's.

(to Don: I hate flies.)

About 2-3 cm long, I'd say.
