When I saw this anthill surrounded by fallen ocotillo flowers, I thought the plant must have just died there. But then I saw another anthill surrounded by the red blooms. Seems the ants collect the flowers.

That is a LOT of ocotillo flowers!
Yes, and they are naturally widely scattered, so the ants have done a lot of work!
How interesting! I wonder what the purpose is. Hmmmm…
Do you suppose the ants have an appreciation for nature’s beauty?
