Late Spring, Montreal, 2012. While dozens of peonies are being helped open with the formic acid that ants secrete. This one is being inspected by a wasp. Or perhaps just casually digesting an ant previously devoured on the next door neighbor.

    Magnifique photo! Comme spectateurs, nous frôlons l’indiscrétion tellement nous sommes rapprochés du sujet!
    J’aime beaucoup aussi ton commentaire biologique et poétique de l’insecte!
