One, two, now!

Two ants are trying to chase a ladybug off their farm. It was very interesting to watch the ants and the ladybug. The ladybug was steadfast but did not leave either, taking up a position. But it could not move forward either due to the ants scurrying back and forth, trying to bite it.
