The Fortress in Würzburg. We stayed in the hostel just below it, looking up at it across a hill of grapes. Franconia has a lot of white wine.

This is a photo from Simon Garnier’s lab at NJIT. With Chris Reid and Courtney Rockenbach, they’re trying to rigorously characterize the process of bridge building in army ants (Eciton in particular). They’ve induced them to make bridges up to 12cm in length (that’s about 12 body lengths).
