Hello friends in TN,

Weaver ants are best known for their remarkable nest construction. Using precise coordination, the weaver ants create very strong ant chains by linking legs to pull and bend leaves into desired tent like positions. The ants then use their own larvae to secrete a silk that is used to stitch leaves together to create a nest. They may have several nests dominating a few trees at once.

They are very aggressive territorial ants and for over 1000 years they have often been used by farmers to control agricultural pests.


Thanks for viewing!

HI Jusni,a mission impossible under the leaf and in this difficult light,the result is very good but not the best talking about the sharpness on the head and body,but were very difficult to make better,you're a little crazy and brave to try shots like that...eheheh...have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Hello Jusni,
wonderful macro shot of this ant with good sharpness and beautiful light. I also like the nicely blurred background and the natural colours.
Best wishes and Happy Easter,

Hi Jusni,

Great shot, such a nice macro, you make this ants looks giant, or you make me so small the same size as this art. Excellent process, brilliant colors, but still very natural, it almost seem HD.

simple and elegant frame.
