Weaver Ants Communication

Photographed these weaver ants as they were entering their nest. Photographed in Macro mode with the inbuilt flash. You can see the flash being reflected in the eye of the left side ant.

These ants are known for their communication and nest building behaviour. Weaver ants are social insects that have complex bio-chemical communication and make elaborate nests out of living tree leaves and of course not to forget their painful, irritating bite.
