A Wasp's Meal Interfered by an Ant

Below is a series of photos of a wasp having a meal.

Note that the wasp is on the underside of a hibiscus leaf.

A black ant is approaching the scene bravely.

What is the black ant thinking?
Trying to be a hero?
 Or could it be waiting for some leftover?
The wasp flew off with its meal.

I have seen a black ant protecting the mealy bugs by attacking the dragonflies.
Each time a dragonfly rest on the twig where the mealy bugs are, the ant would chase it away.

This is because ants farm mealy bugs for their secretions.
They may be small but fierce.
Any idea why the black ant approached the wasp that was having a meal?

I want to take this opportunity to wish Bom of Plant Chaser a Happy Belated Birthday and also Happy 1st Blogiversary!
Bom has requested that a post be prepared for this auspicious day.
The post must feature a genus that is listed on his site.
Little would he expect me to post on what I see underside the Hibiscus leaf.
I hope Bom like surprises!
Happy Birthday!
The red  hibiscus flower above is for you!

Gold Dragonfly and White Grasshopper

Dragonflies come in many different colours.
For this post, you get to see a golden dragonfly found in my garden.
In my opinion it is gorgeous at every angle.

I am glad to know there are many people who appreciate little critters like I do.

In fact, Cindy Michaud, a professional artist, turned a simple photo of a white grasshopper I posted at Onenezz recently into something so amazingly beautiful below.
Do hop over to her site and check out her amazing work of art.


Rain Droplet Capture

I captured snapshots of water droplets after the rain this morning.

The little twigs and leaves captured rain droplets...

...and the rain droplets captured images of twigs and leaves.
