video: western thatching ants in action


I recently bought a new camera: an Olympus OM-D E-M5. One of the reasons I bought it was that I wanted to try my hand at video.

A couple of weeks ago I took some video of western thatching ants. I really didnít have a plan, and to be honest, I wasnít all that sure of what I was doing! But I shot a few minutes of video, came home and edited the footage using MS Movie Maker. Amazingly the whole process only took a couple of hours!

So now I have my own Youtube channel, I have uploaded a video, and itís about ants...I'm such a geek!

David Attenborough has nothing to worry about; but it was a fun little project and it has me thinking about the possibilities...

Please check it out and donít hesitate to comment. Any suggestions for improvement would be gratefully received.

Nice video Ernie. The music and text complement it well.

You've got to find some leaf cutter ants and video them... they are hilarious.

Thanks! You're right, leaf-cutters would be great to video! Unfortunately we don't have them here in Canada. Just another excuse to travel back to the tropics!
