I observed some ants at work today. They were carrying away a dead cockroach. Bit by bit they dismantled the cockroach. Part by part they carried it away. And I just could not stop watching. Those teeny tiny creatures, carrying something which was probably 100 times their size.

There was so much coordination in their movement that I could almost hear them sing in unison as they went about the task of transferring the remains of the cockroach to their home. They paused on the way. Putting down their load to catch their breathe. There were others scurrying here and there. So much activity; so much perseverance.
