I had to shoot many of the clips in 240 fps so it's easier for the eye to catch the twitchy movements of these amazing insects.
"Oecophylla smaragdina (common names include weaver ant, green ant, green tree ant, and orange gaster) is a species of arboreal ant found in tropical Asia and Australia. These ants form colonies with multiple nests in trees, each nest being made of leaves stitched together using the silk produced by the ant larvae."
Shooting info - filmed in natural habitat at northern Philippines on October 13, 2019, Sony RX10 IV, Uniqball UBH45 + Manfrotto 455B tripod, manual exposure in available light.
