What is this bug doing?

This “flying ant” was gathering dirt from a hole and dropping it on the other side of the stick. Not sure if he was making a hill to play on or digging a ditch for a home (or boobie-trap for a centipede). Either way he got pretty territorial when I tried to take this photo. Don’t worry flying ant, there’s enough dirt for everyone.

Truck Framing Cars

While driving to work I was overwhelmingly compelled to take this photo at a very long red light… something about the gritty urban paint chips on the truck framing a trail of cars trickling into the distance like two mirrors sitting across from each other struck me beautiful.
