On our morning walk we saw an ant trail in the forest. It was etched more than a centimetre into the moss. The photos are not great - when there we could see the shiny black ants moving along the trail, but they are impossible to see in the still photos. The ants were about 1/2 centimetre long.

Close up of the trail - there are ants in there moving along the highway.
