While on a tour of a remote tribal hamlet in Northern Andhra Pradesh, as I sipped tea one morning just after sunrise, I saw this army of ants descend on a dead dragon fly in the courtyard. They practically devoured the dragon fly in the matter of minutes,somehow managing to raise its tail in the process of moving it about 15 ft from its original location. As the army moved, I saw that the sun filtering through the tattered green plastic sheet covering the roof had cast a peculiar greenish glow and the shadows around the dragon fly made a spectacular photo

Location: Sileru village,North Andhra Pradesh bordering Odisha,India
