  • Beautiful macro-pictures you got there.

    My better half ( > me / 2 ? ) gave me one of those ant farms last year and we pretty much saw the same necrologic behavior (chamber of the dead, then recycling of members of, er, dead members of the colony as makeshift direction sign).

    The funny thing is that even though those ants are supposed to live up to two months max, the last two or three survivors of the colony went into a kind of hibernation. Which means that for six months or so, they periodically woke

  • I must have been affected by working with archaeologists for the past 2 years, because I found the way you described the ants taking care of their dead extremely fascinating! It made me think about human burials and what behavior of ours would seem extremely bizarre to an outside perspective.

    Also, I agree with Yanick. Nice pics.
