Dear All – thanks for your kind comments and reading of this blog over the past year and look forward to sharing more about the world of insects in 2010. Here is a sketch of some thorns that ants live in on the whistling thorn acacia. These are from my recent trip to Laikipia north of Mt Kenya. One particular tree had these silvery and black variegated thorns… They are so lovely I thought this is an apt time to share them – Mother Nature’s natural xmas decorations…More from the world of bugs soon! Asante!
