Ants and brambles

The somewhat cooler, moister weather has spurred ants into more activity.  These large ants were scrambling along the end of a blackberry bramble branch. Not sure what they were after. A few feet below, red ants were swarming the carcass of a green anole.  (Photo not published. Might not go well with breakfast.)
