Somewhere during a brief stop, ant trail pops out of one side of the road.

The trail is well organised, while each individual is seeing carrying dead termites.

Someone said the ants are returning from a night raid of a nest, and those are the spoils of war.

The trail is visibly finite, unlike typical trails I've encountered.

And the ants, feeling threatened as I closed in with my device, make a light humming and move rhythmically in response.

This is one of the most interesting thing I've witnessed in the natural world.

Description

I was surprised to notice what appeared to be several fresh galls of varying growth patterns on my backyard Frangula californica.

Part of my surprise is the timing. It is early for flowering and especially fruiting. When I looked at the bush today I only found one flower bud on a bush that is approximately 2 meters x 2 meters. Yet there were 7 apparent galls of varying forms. I am moderately-to-highly confident that these galls did not exist in November.

This gall looks a bit like a possible fruit gall previously reported here:

https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/95882473

But it is lacking the pointy appendage (which was visible on some other galls today).

It looks like there was a single puparium (or is it two?) inside.

This is distinct from the spring flower gall that has multiple larvae inside, as seen here:
