I discovered a sure fire way to get these fast and erratic ants (Opisthopsis rufithorax) to stand still - look for them on really tasty flowers, they don't seem to care about anything you do! Oxley Creek, Qld.
White-footed ant (Technomyrmex sp.) rests on the spent seed pod of a milkweed plant. Oxley Creek, Rocklea.
Acrobat ant (Crematogaster sp.) drops some debris it collected from inside the nest. These ants were excavating possibly an existing hole inside a tree that has become victim to borers. Oxley Creek, Qld.
