Ant Chat Episode 24: Spring Ant Activity

I really didn't expect to find so many ants out already. There were even Tapinoma sessile, Nylanderia sp., and Lasius neoniger wondering about but I didn't record those as I couldn't located their nests.
This is the camera I'm using for this video. The default setting for video is AVCHD Lite which is meant to be viewed directly on HD TV's. So there isn't a whole lot of software out there that can edit it. This setting can be changed to Motion Jpeg which isn't HD as I mention in the video, but I'm happy with the quality all the same. I see there are better versions of this camera now, but I haven't researched how they vary with quality though. My next camera investment will be more advanced than a point and shoot though.
