Spent the morning familiarizing myself with my new surroundings. The ants seem to be pretty busy today. Well, busier than usual; they are ants, after all. I shadowed a few of them just to get some idea of their regular foraging trails - I don't think I was seen.
Finding a place to lurk was a bit tougher; there was a good spot near the anthill, but I didn't like that oh-so-convenient Jolly Rancher just sitting around waiting to be picked up. Had the smell of a trap. I dug in under some mulch on the far side of the hill, instead, where I would have a clear sight line. So far, no sign of pursuit from the mantis.
