Saw this single ant-like critter in the pool yesterday, sheltering from the wind. I requested him to crawl onto a leaf for some images, but unfortunately I had picked the wrong leaf, which was very smooth, and he couldn't get a proper grip
. However we eventually managed to finish the photo shoot, and I hope from these images someone can give me an ID for him.
NB: The nearest I can find to him is the velvet ant, or cow ant, but the spots are red, and not white as on this critter.
