Tall trees

Some of the trees here are really, really tall. It feels pretty special to stand next to them, especially those with huge buttressing roots like this miraculous specimen. Unfortunately for me, the ants I'm trying to find hang out up at the tops. 

Right now, that means to find them I generally walk around looking for freshly fallen trees, then go around snapping twigs and hoping. This sounds pretty ridiculous, but somehow it works. I even found a few Procryptocerus doing this the other day, which were way up there on my wish list. 

Hopefully in the next couple days I'll get to climb one of these beauties!
