Author's notes

Following on from my inconclusive sighting of 16 December, here is a close-up photo of same ants in same sapling. They are tending small orange lerp-like growths and the ones on the left are tending small black and white objects like tiny insects. The ants look like meat ants. Hairstreak butterflies and pupae were sighted on this sapling last summer.

The 'small black and white objects' appear to be psyllids and may be a species of Acizzia, many of which are known Acacia feeders.
