    Default Wonders of nature

    ID: Polyrhachis rastellata(a type of ant)

    Stumbled upon this beautiful specimen, that seemed to be traversing the lengths of the bamboo growth, though at a lethargic speed, allowing us to frame the exquisitely glossly body, the colour and the gloss almost reminded me of the jamun(Java plum). I guess this is the first time I had encountered such a unique life form of the insectdom

    Nice to see this species up-close. Agree the dark purple colour resembles to a jamun fruit. There seems to a reflection of another ant (passing by) on its body. Nice capture. Thanks for sharing.
