Weaver Ant,
Oecophylla smaragdina.
We got this plant in a pot in our garden (see workshop) and a flower appeared. These Ants visit the flower and drink the juice on the Spathe that offered by the plant. The flower opened for only one day and next day it closed trapping some of the ants inside the flower. It long time for me to get right ant to capture with low lighting conditions.
I don't know the exact ID of the plant, wish somebody help in finding the Id.
