You put your left leg in. . . .
Walking the yard today, shooting lots of (what else?) planthoppers and ambush bugs, I came across what I'm thinking is a new-to-me fly - I believe it's one of the "Feather-legged Flies".  I was so intent on the fly that I didn't even notice the ant until post - and there was another, oof, who didn't get the memo and wasn't with the program, so I nuked it.  (It's still pretty good with the ant, but I like it better this way and wanted full disclosure.)

Love your title- having a lovely dance with one foot up, accompanied by an imitating ant. Well set up on the Queen Anne's Lace (I think). Fun shot-well done!

Bug Line Dancing!  I love it that the ant is doing the same movement - who knew that bugs were so talented.  :D   Amazing what a wander around your yard produces, Craig!
