One of the fun things about living here at Chipembi Farm College is sometimes I get surprised by the flora and fauna that I see. The other day, I was walking back to Paul’s place, and a bunch of goats appeared out of nowhere and crossed in front of me. Turns out they were being driven somewhere else on the farm by their goat herder.
A couple of weeks ago, it was a column of black army ants. These half-inch long insects appeared to be carrying food to their colony. I could actually hear a faint crackling sound as they crossed in front of me.
When I got closer to take the second photo (below), some of these aggressive little fellows broke off from the column and started moving towards me.
