A colony of weaver ants attempting to bridge a gap between a papaya (Carica papaya) tree leaf branch (not pictured) and a Fig (Ficus sp.) tree branch (shown here) using their bodies.
Large semi-urban yard/garden adjacent to a disturbed remnant patch of forest.
These ants are very defensive/aggressive. They have a distinct odor. Grateful for a confirmation of species ID.
