Lasius niger digging

*EDIT*

Ooohh a DD! Thank you so much!

Thank you all for the suggestion, the feature, the comments, the favourites!

I have read the comments and a lot of them are asking what this photo is all about.

It is a photograph of common UK garden ants, Lasius niger, digging in an ant farm. Rather than sand, the ant farm is filled with a blue gel, which they tunnel in. They can also eat the gel, so it meets all their requirements.
