Classic Flutters. On-personality.
The ants go marching one by one. HOORAH! HOORAH!
That's what was going in my head when I saw this pic.
Reminds me of when I used to watch anthills when I was in elementary.
(Dimensions have been drawn really well and accurately too, considering the angle and pose.)
Seriously though, I have a thing about not mixing dirty stuff with pony stuff. In my opinion, it just kind of ruins it.
Primitive cultures are so adorbale.
It's reminds me a scene from Winnie the Pooh ^^
Yeah so I killed a bunch of ants in my youth
just thought I'd bring it up
You see sweet, innocent ants!
I see a tyrannical system of monarchy led my a malevolent ruler whom forces her subjects to scavenge the Endless Span (large park...) for sustenance!
While knowing about the massive threats that live above!
Including the SCREECHING WHITE BANSHEE! With her evil hissing mist of stinging...EVIL!
(Rarity and a bottle of pepper-spray.)
I'm such a nerd...xD
And where you see a system of cruel exploitation of hapless serfs for the benefit of a lethargic reproductive elite, I see a destructive collective hell-bent on total domination!
These are no innocent souls yoked into slavery, but a swarm of pitiless soldiers biologically programmed to destroy all that does not accept their rule! They march far and wide, burrow beneath our very feet, take what they want, and instinctively attack all that are unlike themselves!
Ants are nature's genocidal fascists!
Although your idea was pretty good too.
