Ant Gathering 蚂蚁聚会 ...


Ant Gathering 
蚂蚁聚会 ...

Witnessing an Ants Gathering seems to be a complex set of events ...
目睹蚂蚁聚会似乎是一套复杂的事件...



In the beginning, there were a few ants meeting on this spot,
it was just for a few seconds ...
在开始时,有少数蚂蚁在这一点上集会, 这只是很短的几秒钟时间......



and quickly they dispersed into various directions ...
他们迅速分散去不同的方向 ...



within a short time, many ants arrive back at the same spot,
initially they seem to just hanging around waiting for the right moment
to start the meeting ...
在很短的时间里,许多蚂蚁到达在同一地点,
最初,他们似乎就在等待适当时机启动会议 ...



Soon after, they move into a some sort of circle ,
and it does seem that the meeting has just begun ...
不久之后,他们进入一个圆圆, 而且会议似乎在刚刚开始了 ...



this meeting seems a long time for me, as I have to wait for about 5 minutes when I finally see
some of the members leaving as if the meeting was about to end ...
这次蚂蚁聚会对我来说似乎很长一段时间,因为我要等待约5分钟; 
当我终于看到一些成员仿佛离开了会议, 也好像会议即将结束了...



soon, all the them starts leaving to various directions
away from the meeting spot ...
不久,他们开始往不同的方向离开会议地点 ...

I wonder what was the meeting about and was it really a meeting or
my eyes are playing tricks on me ...
不知道这次蚂蚁会议会议在底是关于什么 ...
