Ant Power

When in Northern Queensland I was able to get shots of some very interesting creatures.
These Green Ants are building a nest.
By using brut strength and numbers they curl the leaves and fix them with excretions.
The resultant nest is waterproof and strong.
Although they have a nasty bite, they are quite tolerant - which is good, as they are found in vast numbers throughout rainforest areas.
