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 didn’t have a plan, and to be honest, I wasn’t 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 it’s 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 don’t hesitate to comment. Any suggestions for improvement would be gratefully received.

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
