Red Weaver Ant (Oecophylla smaragdina) complete their nest building with silk!

A couple of days after first photographing the Red Weaver Ant (Oecophylla smaragdina) colony building their nest (possibly one of many), i decided to check on their progress.

This single Red Weaver Ant (Oecophylla smaragdina) quickly noticed my presence as i took a few photographs of the colony building their nest just outside my house.

It was soon joined by another pair and together they perched on the tip of the closest leaf to my camera lens, straining to reach it!

Full moon raising over  Koh Phangan, this is the Supermoon of 2011...

This is the reason for much merriment and craziness once every month on Koh Phangan island in the Gulf of Thailand.

Tonight (19th) is the point where the moon is at its closest to the earth for the month, also known as perigee.

Details of a Dragonfly's Amazing Muscleature...

I found this huge (in relative terms) Dragonfly on the wall of The Dive Inn and managed to get within a few CM's of it to get this macro shot of the amazing muscle structures that power its wings.

Seen from this angle, it's easier to see the impressive size of the Pha Ngan Royal Ship as it moves into its final resting place at Thongsala, Koh Phangan.

This huge ship's anchor, set into the ground, is presumably the anchor from the Pha Ngan Royal Ship.
