Wow what an incredible shot 😍.

 

Thank you ACC. Green ants are very common in the north of Australia. I have them in my garden. And they bite! They even jump on you and bite you!

They are very interesting to watch though. Here they were rolling a leaf prior to sealing it to make a nest.

Don't forget the vitamin C one can get by licking them. A thing every tourist learns in the outback. I think I have been told 5 times a day. LOL.

Yes I have tried. The bite on the tongue is interesting and not very strong. After the ants come the grubs of course. ;-)

 

Great shot indeed. Specific behavior is always interesting.

Have you tried licking a bull ant? That would keep you dancing. LOL!!

I have tried lemon ants in Peru.

Indeed. The search tags were Green Ants and Bridge.

I have lots of behaviour shots of green ants. I find them fascinating. Except when they invade my sunbird nest and drive Mum to distraction. Then I intervene.
