Dizzy with Nectar


The sunflower ants,
dizzy with nectar, stagger
in circles of light.

  1. I like that description — dizzy with nectar.

  2. Oooo, I love the photo AND the Haiku on this one!!

  3. Love the photo, MMT ~ So sunflower ants can get drunk if they ingest too much nectar?

  4. oh look at the little ants…love it…what a great photo

  5. Beautiful sunflower, I like it.

  6. haha! so cute! too much nectar for the day 🙂

  7. Dizzy, yes,but not
    Conflicted. Those ants know where
    Their loyalty lies.

    Shadows in Red, Shadows in Blue;
    What’s a conflicted fellow to do?

    Umbras are usually somber and gray;
    But colorful shadows are playing today.

    So from the view of this color-plagued fellow,
    The very best shadows are those cast in yellow!
