Superstition



Yes, even the ants have a role to play in Ancient superstitions. Roman soldiers often observed ants, if they were fighting it meant the enemy was near.

...and, congratulations to Tracy at http://www.yellowkittynotebook.blogspot.com/ , she won the "bunny-flower" contest!

Ah, yes, reminds me of all those gladiantor movies I watched as a kid. The lips never matched the sound, but the fighting was frantic. And with so many appendages with which to hold swords and knives and such, fighting between your ant actors would be even more so.

I didn't know that about ants. It has been a long time since you commented on my site so I am going to come here and say hi. I like your picture with the coliseum, and thanks for the info. That is amazing.

I am going to post something about frogs. Thanks.
