Weaver ants or Green ants (genus Oecophylla) are eusocial insects of the family Formicidae (order Hymenoptera). Weaver ants are obligately arboreal and are known for their unique nest building behaviour where workers construct nests by weaving together leaves using larval silk. […] Oecophylla smaragdina found in Australia often have bright green gasters.

I just figured out I didn't post any macro for quite some time; so I decided to go out this past tuesday and make some. Adjustments are relatively basics here, I tried to enhance colors from an initial much more dull picture, to get a result closer to “what I've seen”.

Is it the right name? Hypomecis roboraria - Great Oak Beauty Any help for identification will be much appreciated. Just a little back to the macro (after the Axalp) to share with you this “picture of the week-end”

I've deliberately used a very thin depth of field (ƒ3.5) to effectively enhance the outline of each leaf. I've made a test with a low aperture (higher ƒ); the result was way different, way less graphic and pleasant — at least for me —.
