when i saw this ant with whatever its carrying .. probably a carcass i immediately thought of this challenge ..

the ant didnt stop moving .. quite a challenge getting a reasonable photo ... its probably a female taking something back to the nest ..

from my research .. "Worker ants are all female, and this sisterhood is responsible for the harmonious operation of the colony. Their tasks range from caring for the queen and the young, foraging, policing conflicts in the colony, and waste disposal. Workers will most likely never have their own offspring."

i did google grungy just to be sure and it certainly fits the description ..
maybe not what most ppl would think of as grungy judging by the votes ..
was 5.9 an hour before rollover then i got a few 4's .. :(

here's some interesting info about ants ..
