As a surveyor my job often takes me to places where nature is in control. Taking the road less traveled usually makes all the difference.

This is one of the Spiny ants. Genus Polyrhachis. Possibly Polyrhachis mucronata?
Thank you so much Neil and WilliamsFamily for commenting. They are certainly a joy to watch. I'm always fascinated by the different hunting strategies and techniques birds use.
Congratulations Tania! Beautiful pictures and interesting notes!
Thank you Lauren and António for your kind words. It really was an interesting find, especially being close to the surf.
Thank you so much Daniele!
Ha ha thanks Lauren! That's what I think when I see your cool bugs!
Thanks Lauren! I was amazed when I found it. I've been working in the area for some time and I know the wood chips had only been there for maybe a year. I guess the conditions were perfect.
Wow Hema! Love this one!
Thanks for the ID chrismcassid.
Wonderful specimen and pics Machi!
