Ant Colonies Start Picketing In The Dirt Of Southern California

El Daino has given us a look inside ant colonies like never before—where each insect works as part of a team to…get a message across that the end is near, free hugs are up for grabs, and that we should all ‘join together’! This hilarious project is called We Come In Peace and uses everyday ants that live in the dirt outside the artist’s home in Riverside, California, with El Daino encouraging them to start a mini revolution.

Now, I’ve seen picketing before, but I think ants have won the battle of cuteness here. And if there’s anything to take from this series of photos, it’s to show that while humans can’t get along (how many wars are we fighting now?), ants sure can!
