Get ready to run

The Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #88: Chaos

A casual stroll
the leaves crackle
underfoot.
Watching birds
the sky above
calmly.
A stop to see
up there
searching.
Unaware below
near the feet
danger.
They sense intruders
this is theirs
forest.
Looking down
a tingle sends
messages.
Here they come
from the nest
rushing.
Quick move away
running in
chaos.

    1. Thank you Tina 🙂 A bite from the Jumping Ants, and they can jump along way and high, is more than an itch, it is like having hot needles poked into your skin. My property name Durranbah is indigenous for small jumping ants

      1. The place had lots more when I first moved here so their proliferation named itself. If a nest is too close to the house I’ll politely ask them to move 😀 😀
