I normally don't like them ...
 
Ok they don't look great
I don't want them anywhere around plants
I just don't like them.

Unless ... when i take pictures of them :)

Just think of the other photo ops they could present - ants that tend them for their honeydew or photogenic predators like Ladybird Beetles and other insectivorous insects and small birds. Great shots as usual.
