Stands up to be counted - Colin McCloud

It may be 'spineless' but this ant stands up to be counted. Here in Cairns, Green Ants are everywhere and watching them build their nests and protecting them is of constant interest to me. This particular Green Ant has run forward to stand up and fight against me and my camera and show that, against the light, he may be 'spineless' but he's also brave.
