Weaver Ant This one took me 2 days. While looking at the flowering plant I spotted the plant stem with this ant busy with something whitish in color ( I guess it's aphid). It was evening time already and there wasn't enough lighting. I tried to capture the picture but failed the first day. All my pictures are captured by the same lens 18-55 which is a tough job to click small subjects, not to mention little shaky lens. Then I thought that tomorrow I will come back to get this ant picture anyway as it seems to be sticking onto its business to the white thing. The next day I was lucky to find it there and finally I got this picture ! :) Oecophylla smaragdina Click/tap to enlarge Promoted

"Oecophylla smaragdina" is a species of arboreal ant found in Asia and Australia. They make nests in trees made of leaves stitched together using the silk produced by their larvae.
