I "paid" for this photo with pain! As I was focusing the camera I felt a sharp pain on my toe and ankle, I glanced down and saw a couple of ants chomping down on my skin. Fire ants!!! I knew if I took photos in Florida long enough, it would finally happen! I was a lot more careful of where I stepped after that!
The pain was worth it though, it had been years since I had seen this plant and I was delighted to find it again!
