    Clockwork robot attacked by bull ants (video)

    This is a rather surreal but short film I shot on a rural property in South Australia. After travelling through a desolate landscape, a toy robot comes face to face with a nest of angry bull ants.

    The video has been getting some attention on news related websites like the ones below:

    Wow, those are some big angry ants. I stepped in a fire ant nest last spring when I was photographing an abandoned house. I know how the robot felt!
