Can you bee-live it? Super strong ant lifts bee five times its size
Can you bee-lieve it? This super strong ant can lift insects five times its size without even breaking a sweat.
The tiny ant was pictured hauling a huge bee back to its nest and made the unbelievable feat look easy.
Photographer, Eko Adiyanto, captured these remarkable images and watched in amazement as the ant eventually drafted in some help from friends – working together to move the bee along a thin branch and back home.
The 43-year-old spotted the incredible scene in the front garden of his home in West Java, Indonesia.
He said: “These pictures show us just how strong ants are and it’s a great example of good team work.
“I have observed and studied their behaviour and habits for a long time but I still feel very lucky to have experienced and witnessed this phenomenal event.
“I think the images are amazing. These ants are small animals but have enormous strength and are able to work together.”
