A Stigmacros ant carries a larvae to safety

“This photo was shot in Western Australia near Margaret River,” says Brendon.

“The hot weather around the time we were in WA had prevented much of the local insect populations from revealing themselves. At around 1.5mm this tiny Stigmacros ant, which are found only in Australia, was found under a rock in her nest.”
