The ant climbs trees.

As does the spider, as does the chipmunk, as does the beetle, as does the squirrel.

The ant crawls on a speckled, holey leaf in the dirt, on to the next leaf.

Zoom out. There are endless, many-coloured leaves, no two the same.

Zoom in. Leaf, to seemingly rusted twig, and even more bravely, a much bigger branch.

What is the soldier climbing now?

Oh my - the ant is making a path on a mossy tree, climbing down, into the ground. Past twigs, past leaves, into dirt.

But a tree - leaves and branches and twigs form a tree.

Ant was climbing trees all along.

All it needed were the roots.
