Interested in doing a PhD on how ants can be like Voltron, joining together to form superstructures using only simple, local rules? I have an ARC-funded position currently open in Sydney, Australia; Please share!

That’s a good bivouac! Definitely easier to work with than Eciton. Maybe we should chat and Mike Rubinstein?

No major changes, just trying to keep them strong. They’ve rejected every artificial diet I’ve tried, seem to only take crickets and honey-water.

Thank you and for my Big Finnish Ant Book! A surprise to receive in the mail, but a beautiful book nonetheless. I look forward to knowing Finnish one day so I can appreciate it fully.

Amazing eucalyptus leaf mimicry in this katydid that flew into my window tonight - the midvein, radiating veins and even disease spots are represented 🦗🍃

I had a similar experience on the weekend, and instead of a hand, I tried to use my toddlers head for scale. Unfortunately the spider was too far away...

Thanks Joe, and thanks for the crash course in info theory and transfer entropy you gave me 5 or 6 years back. This is part of what I was talking about. More still to be done!
