There are all sorts of ants in Australia. Mostly I want to avoid them. Their bite can be extremely painful. However one of them isn’t as aggressive. The Green Tree Ants have a green abdomen and yellow-green thorax. They are also known as Weaver Ants as they weave leaves together to form their nest. They can be aggressive and will inflict a painful bite and squirt formic acid from the tip of their abdomen – they do not sting, though.
I found them fascinating. And we love the same flower..
