    I must commend you on the EXCELLENT photos of ants. I know from first hand knowledge that it is very difficult to capture an image of a living ant. I like your web site very much. I have studied ants for about 30 years, and I would like to know if you might be interested in an exchange of determined ants preserved in 70% ETOH from the southwestern USA for some from Western Australia

      Thanks for your comment, Robert – photographing ants can be very frustrating but also quite rewarding when you get that shot of that particular species you have been chasing for some time.

      Thanks for the offer, but I am not interested in preserved specimens at this stage.
