Flowers …. or Insects?

Looking at the flower head of a Nanobubon capillaceum, one sees only flowers, but photography allows one to look more closely and I was surprised to see no less than 23 insects in this picture – most of them ants.  Callan, who walked with us yesterday, spoke of how shaking a plant can reveal a vast array of insects.  Well, he was certainly right about that!
