Tomorrow morning I and other ant researchers head to the famous annual Ant Course, held this year at the Makerere University Biological Field Station in Kibale, Uganda. It’s been a few years since my last participation at Ant Course. I’ve never been to that part of the world before, and I’m excited to see some old friends. Plus, the ant fauna looks…enticing. If all goes well I’ll finally get shots of the spectacular surface-raiding Dorylus driver ants.

Another tropical adventure, however, means I won’t be keeping up with the blogging. Myrmecos will be on vacation for the next couple weeks, but it’s all in the name of spicing this place up with crazy African insects when I return.

Happy August, everyone!
