    Yes, Stick-nest Rainbow Ants - Iridomyrmex conifer group. For wetter parts of the year they build these mounds out of charcoal, she-oak needles, fine twigs and anything else suitable, and in hotter drier months build their nests underground like most other ants.

    Thanks Kate! I'd like to follow you on iNat, but I can't find you there, you're not showing up when I do a 'People' search. :(

    What's going on here? Is it mating behaviour, or is it one ant about to be eaten by the other? Hoping Kate can id for me before I post on iNaturalist.
