Ant on Peony

Ant on Peony
One cloud all week but it came with a lot of electrical activity so I went out after the threat was gone. Here is what I found in the aftermath.

Peonies need ants to stimulate the blooms to open.

TSC: Rain.

A great macro and thanks for not only sharing it, but for the information too ... I hadn't realised the role of the ant in getting your peonies to flower! :)
