Forgotten Photo Friday: Carpenter ant and membracid

A simple scene, a common sight:

Eastern black carpenter ant  (Camponotus pennsylvanicus), tending to membracid nymph

Dreamy greens embrace a large carpenter ant (Camponotus pennsylvanicus) and its ward (a treehopper nymph – Membracidae) as they mutually enjoy a plant-sap meal.
