2 1/2 cm long (almost 1 inch long) these Giant ants come out of the ground with the first rains at the beginning of every rainy season. they are everywhere for a few days and walk right ino the open doors of your house. some have wings, others don't.

anybody knows more about them ?

(i was told they are good fried in tacos) sorry about that (((: but that is what i heard!!!)


PS - i followed this one... camera in hand... down on my elbows and knees until it climbed onto something interesting for me to shoot (((((((:
