Combat between Harvester Ants (Messor andrei) is featured here. One-on-one, and, closer to the nest, many fighting one. An image of a spider, waiting in its web below ground, is also included. These macros were taken at several Messor nests near Escobar Gate. A companion gallery contains images of flowers, and a scene of oaks.
