Parades

Here is a ribbon or a parade of green banners that we tracked from up a small hill, across the jungle floor, up and over the high rise ribs of a Ficus tree root, to this fallen young tree, along the tree for about 75 feet, down again at another tree root, across the floor again, to a nondescript mud mass with two apertures, one for the parade to enter.  When the mud mass was thumped, out the second one poured much larger red ants with pincers determined to ward off or, that failed, fight off to the death any intruders making such a nuisance.  Marvellous!
