  • When high end camera gear costs as much as a person earns in 5-10 years at a regular job in a typical 3rd world country; expect it to be stolen. It is like solid gold.

    I had it happen in Italy...

  • acidic, yes the ants will get stuck and serve as bridges to other ants to get past the Vaseline. That is why having clumps of it along and around the legs in more than one section makes it next to...

  • The reason they took the plastic and the other bits is because you left a sweat or smell imprint on it. The ants do not eat the leafs or insects they take. They hoard it deep into their nests and...

    This is a better video camera than photo and while it does it well,...
