Attack of legionary ants (also known as army ants or marabunta) to a wasp honeycomb. Impressive the level of swarm intelligence and collective computation to form that bridge. pic.twitter.com/StvDkmv8x8

This is more of a “Tuesday after the long weekend bonus blog” so don’t expect anything to plucky. These ants are all about to fuck up my least favorite insect and I’m all about it, plus I’ve never seen something like this before. Nature is incredible.
If only they could build a bridge like this to my Ex’s house.
If you want to know more about the collective behavior of army ants making these impressive largely decentralized self-organized systems, check out this video with Simon Garnier (@sjmgarnier) from the New Jersey Institute of Technology (@NJIT) pic.twitter.com/3dukAIvcLf
