Aphids and the Ant

Aphids and Ants seem to go together as this image shows---I was flat on the ground on my stomach photographing ants when this one climbed to the top of a flower bud. I could not see the aphids with my naked eyes---it wasn't until I saw the image on my computer that I realized all the aphids were also on the flower bud.
