Weaver Ant nests

Oecophylla smaragdina

Description:

Beautifully 'finished' nests ...all at different stages of dryness. Very artistic. Stuffed with soft cotton-like lining for comfort.

Habitat:

Garden of the hotel inside JSW Township, Vidyanagar near Hampi in Karnataka, India. All the trees and shrubs were festooned with these nests.

Notes:

You can see the architects in the third photo. This one was at eye level. The others were really way up on a tall tree.
