Atta cephalotes: Olympic Torch

Photo by A. Sunjian

This ant struggled for maybe 20 minutes trying to get a good hold on this REALLY bulky and large piece of vegetation. The ant circled around the fallen piece once in a while, tried again, failed, then circled around again. Finally, it managed to get a good balanced grip on it. This photo was taken at the Central Park Zoo in NYC, in New York.
