      1. OK, that’s a major “Wow!” moment. I had to look carefully to realize she wasn’t just lounging in a mound of dirt. She’s huge compared to them! Very cool.

  1. I finished reading “The Superorganisms” by Holldoebler which you recommended a while ago. Very interesting! Thanks for the recommendation.
