Yellow Ants for Mellow Yellow Monday

I had never seen yellow ants before, that is, until yesterday. We were along and old unpaved graveled woods road looking for rocks to put in our garden. Its fascinating what you  can find under rocks, we were hoping to see  a salamander yesterday but we didn't see any.  but we did find a couple of fascinting species.First, shown below were  a bunch of
yellow ants scurrying about trying to save their eggs. There were a lot of ants and eggs there.
Also we found a small toad under a big rock  , it was rather an earthy coloured creature.  I didn't see it at first, then David pointed it out to me. Its amazing that such things live under big, heavy rocks.  Sorry toad and ants but your rock 'home dome' is now in our garden possibily  becoming a new home dome for some other  earthy creatures.
