Bull Ant

In Melbourne, it rained a lot. That made the dirt around a particular tree very wet. The tree fell down.

The tree fell on a dodgy old retaining wall, which also fell down.

A Bull Ant nest was exposed, and they came out to have a looksee.

 

Matt crawled in on his tummy with the best Macro lens he had, and using LiveView (I'm getting as far as I can away from these fellas) took the best pics I could.

 

Aggressive little dudes. One of them charged the camera with his pincers open.
