Heads, bodies, and legs of larger ants litter the entranceway to a harvester-ant nest; some residents are cleaning up while others bring in the harvest.

Two other insect encounters are here, with a grasshopper and a butterfly.

As usual, please leave a comment with an ID, or any other comment -- on a individual photo! Do you know the ID of the ant body pieces?
