"Horrors! ANTS! Carrying the dreadful the sap-sucking aphids."
Rhyonna watches the ants walking by the rock, following in a line behind another ant on their way with their sapsuckers. Always, in a line, those awful ants always follow. Ants always work, never feeling or seeing, only working for food, daytime or nighttime.
Once Rhyonna did see them drink water from a leaf. And yes, they do pat heads with their feelers. They never talk, laugh, or sing. Always stuck on the ground, always walking. Wind blowing or the rain falling is not of importance to the ants. On and on they walk. They never sleep! They have no fun.
Rhyonna watches the line travel up a daisy stem placing aphids beneath a flower, Keegan's flower. These horrid sap-sucking aphids drink the sweet sap, precious sugar, stopping the flower's growth. Then the ants milk the sweet sap from the aphids. Then ants in a line, hold the drops of sap in their front claws, follow another ant down the daisy stem, carrying the sweet sap to another ant, and then walk to the colony. How tedious, always working.
