Aphids, Grass, and Ants

While cleaning up the yard some I discovered this patch of aphids under a blade of grass. There was a steady line of Prenolepis imparis, Winter Ants, visiting them. As temperatures drop down this will become one of the few species of ant out and about.

This is the first time I've seen aphids on grass.

They have a neat blue-green color to them.
