IMG_7375 weaver ant nest making crew

Prachuap Khiri Khan, Thailand--These weaver ants are bending a leaf into a sort of a tent which they will cement together with a silky cement they squeeze from the body of an ant larva. The line and flow of this image kind of reminds me iconic WWII photo of the US Marines raising the American flag after the battle for Iwo Jima.
