might not have been easy, but as you said - still looks rather great ;)

as for the bullet ant, as long as you're not dumb enough to react instinctively by flicking it off, allowing it to deliver a second bite to your index finger in addition to the one in your shoulder I can't feel all that bad for you :oops:

...but yup, worse than weevers, scorpion fish, fire ants, various wasps, etc...

Oh I flicked it off, I don't think it is possible to think about anything else when that sensation enters your body, it was my leg and my fingers stayed safe.

Thanks Kristian!
