          It will burn like hell! Looking at its color, it’s probably quite poisonous too.

        Catch a few of these and head for the fishing hole Tobie.

          Catching them would be fun Robert, but I’m afraid not the fishing part – life’s too short to sit next to a dam waiting for something to happen! 😉

          He popped out of the shrubbery as my wife was watering the garden. She screamed out and I came running to see what had happened only to turn right around and rush back inside for my mobile camera. I was about three inches away from it when I took this.

          No argument here Dahlia. I think they’ve been known to carry off small children 🙂 .

      An Inch Ant. As I was taking this pic, those orangey globs came out of it’s mouth and it started to clean them with it’s front legs. Yuk!

        Wow, I had to look up Inch ants, that’s a big ant! Where I lived as a kid, wen had wood ants in the nearby woods, and I thought they were big, but it seems they’re about half the size of inch ants!

          By pure coincidence, I happened to be listening to a radio interview with someone who is an expert on ants recently and he talked about inch ants. He said that despite their ferocious looking pincer-jaws, they don’t bite you but sting you with their tail.

          Unlike most ants, they seem to travel around solo. I see them everywhere, incuding inside the house sometimes.

        That must have been really a huge ant Graham 🙂

        Thanks Robert. I intend trying to photograph one of these again one day as this shot is a wee bit noisy.

        Wow, great shot David! Love the DOF and colour.
        Never heard of these creatures before but I’m assuming its in Australia somewhere?
