Oecophylla smaragdina
This weaver ant (Oecophylla smaragdina) scout and hundreds of thousands like her patrol the tree canopy. When she finds either food or enemies threatening the colony's territory, she vibrates her body to call thousands of other scouts to join her. Photo by Mark W. Moffett © National Geographic Magazine
