Ant House

Do we think building a house is easy for the species other than humans? I personally don't think so. Just look at this complex yet fabulous structure created by the ants. If the ants were of our size, the size of the house would have been 730 feet in diameter! That too, made of just soil and sheer hard work!! Who's great, humans or ants?

  6. Your question: 'Who 's great, humans and ants? Am appropriate and justified!
    We humans need to be humble towards nature which we belong without being the masters ...

    beautifull and clever photograph.

    Have a good day Bhavesh.

  7. Ants work very industriously and with great purpose, for a common goal. We could certainly emulate them!

  8. Great capture...it looks like a bhul-bhuliya (maze)proving that they are intelligent creatures and that they don't need to use machines or mess up the ecological balance to do so.

  14. Very different from our anthills here. But no matter where, yes, I think nature is greatest and I am humble before the forces of the universe and do not see humans as above or better than ants. Just all part of the fabric of the universe.

    I like how your close-ups let the structure and texture of the anthills be examined and appreciated!

    when you think how amazing these creatures are just think how great the one who created these small creature He is God, the One and Only;

    God, the Eternal, Absolute; He begetteth not, nor is He begotten; And there is none like unto Him.
