Ants In Their Pants

Yes it's the two Stephens (Rutt and Menzie). They have been released from their logging hutch for the day to accompany BirdGuides senior cameraman Max Whitby on an exciting filming trip to photograph Small Red Damselfly. Unfortunately the great master (ie Max): 1) forgot to bring the CF cards; 2) the tripod; 3) and failed to find out in advance that the private reserve that was the mission's objective requires advance permission and was closed anyway.

But we did find a splendid Wood Ant nest. Here you can see the boys up close and personal with several tens of thousands of the little beasts about to crawl up their trousers. Rumour has it a video will shortly be available on YouTube.
