Sinister looking ants, not tending aphids, however, but nymphs of treehoppers. Here is an image of a similar treehopper nymph to the ones in the first photo. It is the second image in the seventh row from the bottom. Those in your second photo are different.

thanks for the clarification. Never knew that they also tended other species.

Hi dlphin!

Great photos of the treehopper nymphs! Lovely detail on the nymphs (ridges on their backs) and the depth of field is very tricky here, so very well done!

Lovely closeups of interesting nature. thanks for sharing.
