Daily Decay (14th April 2018): Unidentified Blow Fly (F. Calliphoridae) @ Lorong Halus

Several squashed Blow Flies were seen around a Changeable Lizard (Calotes versicolor) roadkill. It’s likely that the flies had been attracted to the carcass, only to fall victim as well to another vehicle.

Weaver Ant (Oecophylla smaragdina)
Lorong Halus, 31st May 2017

This particular individual Weaver Ant was a gyne or queen (female reproductive) – she would have left her colony as an alate (winged reproductive), flown for some distance, mated and shed her wings, and then searched for a site to establish her own colony. Unfortunately, it appears that something had stepped on her, or she had gotten run over by a passing vehicle.
