Sunlight on Gazania center... with ANTS and ???

ants and others on Gazania blossom
As always, once the image (taken with a Nikkor 105mm VR macro lens) was uploaded to my computer, I saw much more than the brilliant sunlight on this Gazania blossom. I'd noticed the ants, but the fat little insects are unknown to me, and until the image was on the computer, had also been unseen. Perhaps a bug expert among you could provide an ID for the fat guys!

  1. Maybe they're aphids? They're the right size and shape, and sometimes ants raise aphids for their sweet excretions.


Thanks so much for stopping by... I try to return all visits and appreciate yours greatly.
