Look out for the ants
During the saguaro cactus migration, the weaker of the herd are picked off by the ants. Since this spectacle would be bad for tourism, the local tourists bureaus long ago agreed to keep this problem under the hat, so to speak. Fortunately, as I was taking this picture of one of the herd leaders, I caught an ant in background. So, here you have proof positive of the dangers of the annual saguaro migration. Since temperatures are predicted in the low 90s and perhaps as low as 80 degrees, the saguaro have already begun their annual migration. I am sorry I really don't have time with all my blogging to follow the migration any further. Maybe again next year?
