A Harvester Ant nest yields treasure: dead Army Ants, castoff heads of much larger Camponotus Ants, a vigorous battle between Harvester Ants, and a mystery insect. Please help with IDs of the insect, and genus/species of the Army Ants and Dragonfly.

Thanks to Noa Pinter-Wollman for pointing out this interesting nest to me.

Birds (Kites!) and landscapes from 9/24 & 9/27 are in "A Day at a Time".
