Mundane Monday #2

Don’t you think ants are full of wisdom and energy? Remember the story “The Ant and the Grasshopper” from the Aesop’s Fables? It only proves that hard work and frugality always pays over prodigality.

But ants don’t know enough to take a vacation. You can always find them to be busy working, garnering food, storing them for the future. They are true workers. Also, they have a truly unselfish way to live life, whenever they find anything eatable, they pass on the news to the nearby colony and, within minutes there are enough ants to carry it back to home.

I found those tiny creatures, carrying the carcass of what looked like a grasshopper. They were totally engaged in their work with full concentration, didn’t mind when I clicked. The food was more important to them.


This is a post for my blogger friend Jithin’s (Trablogger)ย ย Mundane Monday Challenge.
