Two ants delightfully feast on a huge strawberry, while expounding the joys of slipping away from the colony to invade a picnic. The third ant bitterly reminds them of their ant friends whose lives have been lost to picnic escapades. The pleasure-seeking ants point out that striving for a better quality of life has its causalities, while the cautious ant feels the risks do not outweigh the rewards. Their debate is interrupted when a little girl spots the ants on her strawberry. Her mother prepares to take care of the situation, as the lights go down.
