My husband is in Malaysia right now. Does he send photos of beaches? No.
photographs he knows will really make me jealous, like
photographs of weaver ants, Oecophylla smaragdina.
I’m not sure of this black one. Ectomomyrmex perhaps?
He says he’s taken some videos, too. Can’t wait to see what else he finds.
Update: My husband reports that the weaver ants were visiting lights at night, catching other insects drawn to them. I’ve seen spiders. praying mantids, etc. doing this, but not ants.
Have you ever seen ants visiting lights at night?

He only visited for a few days. It looks like a cool place for ants.
