A friend of mine just sent me an edited version of this photo:
Quite an impressive bit of acrobantics. According to this article, “Robertus Agung Sudiatmoko captured the pose when a trail of fire ants passed near him in the small village of Cibinong, Indonesia.” There’s only one problem with this statement: this is a weaver ant, genus Oecophylla, not a fire ant, genus Solenopsis. I’m not sure where this is on the Myrmecos Taxonomy Fail Index, but it’s obviously a silly mistake! Do you see a postpetiole? I didn’t think so.
