Ant Alarm

Among other creepy crawlers and winged beauties ants are everywhere, from tiny to way to big for my liking, from black to brown and red. The red ones are apparently a nice snack if you are very desperate. A German group I’ve met told me their guide would just pick them of trees, munching on them while explaining temple history to them.

A whole colony seems to be moving to a new home. I could see tiny eggs being transported. Fascinating.

Volume up to hear them gnaw on the dry leaf.

Everywhere I locked my bicycle to there were the red ants, instantly climbing all over it. I started distracting them with some dehydrated papaya. They might taste yummy but they do bite!
