Ants cleaning up... Can't say I'm a huge fan of wasps or hornets however I was drawn to this already dead hornet on the path. It was huge in comparison to what I have seen before. You can see a little ant peeking out near the hornet's head. I intended to go back later on after taking this picture to see if the ants had dismantled it and carried away but it seems they were not interested in eating it.
