Been absconding for almost a month now! The most significant bit during this period was a visit to Alice to watch Melophorus bagoti. Here we began an ambitious project of trying to determine what is that the ants see while returning to the nest. While watching Melophorus, by sheer luck I ended up finding the Muscle-man ants Podomyrma species (pictured) in this site, a species which I hadn’t seen here since 2003! So, yes in short that was really exciting!
