The rear of my unit at Karama

A nice big rear yard, with barbeque area, carport etc.

Another view of the lounge

This unit is much bigger than my Fannie Bay unit, but the suburb is not as nice!

My unit lounge room

The new unit, with freshly cleaned lounge suite, very comfortable!

My new unit in Karama

This is what the Green Ant nest looks like when nearly completed.

This nest is just about finished being constructed. Having researched its construction, it appears the the green tree ant (Oecophylla smarigdina)glues together individual leaves with silk produced by their larvae. I must be careful not to get my hair full of angry Green Ants when going through the gate!

Came across this activity at my garden gate, I must remember to duck!
