Large-scale patterns can arise in the vegetation of homogeneous areas due to biotic interactions of animals and plants. If the satellite imagery has a high enough resolution, such patterns can be easily observed. Here we show some large polka-dot arrangements, probably created by the red harvester ants, in Arizona, near the Grand Canyon.
