Monkey Chains of Bees and Insect Bivouacking



   Special thanks to furzicle for her assistance as videographer. She braved the bees and survived mostly unscathed -- a bee pooped on her ipad. The below is the original impromptu video I made with my phone that kind of gave me the idea, but it has a much better monkey chain formation.




   "In the end, only kindness matters," this birdhouse when I first met it back in January, before I relocated it to my yard.

   And read more about the fascinating rafting behavior of red fire ants!

   Here's someone else's video of an impressive ant bridge across water. Please ignore the terrible music.

   The book I'm reading is this fascinating anthology (ant-thology???) about insects.

   And finally, here I get eaten by army ants in Nigeria. [fade to image of skeleton being crawled over by ants]
