One of the wonders of creating ants is their way of defending themselves

One of the wonders of creating ants is their way of defending themselves, as they collectively release and scold a group of foul-smelling acids from their abdomen, formic acids, which emit an unpleasant smell, such as the smell of vinegar, which expels birds and hungry insects such as “wood cows” and ” wasp”.

 

These beautiful scenes were taken in the Weir ham forests in the British province of Dorset, by professional wildlife photographer Paul Kwajalein, who is hidden to photograph the colony of ants amid pine nests, so that the ants behave normally and do not hide inside their stones.

 

Photographer Kwajalein expressed surprise and amazement at how ants defend themselves despite witnessing different species of forest ants in Britain, and Kwajalein likened the smell of ants to the smell of salt mixed with vinegar, chips, and fish and potatoes, which quickly become an unbearable stinking smell.
