Co-operation

 Co-opeation and team work is not the prerogative of humans. Insects like the weaver ants show it in full measure.
 I watched fascinated when the ants built their nest using the leaves of my Ixora plant. Some ants held the leaves together while some sealed them with the saliva of a young ant.
 Finally, their home was ready- a safe haven which keeps them dry even during the raging monsoon storms.
This is my contribution to Our World Tuesday which is giving such pleasure to all of us , week after week!
