I quite often see solitary bull ants wandering around at night, usually after a bit of rain.

This one was heading up the wall, about to tap on my back door, I suspect! (Or maybe it was just attracted by the light!)

No display of aggression as I moved in close for this photo and least 3cm in length.

They are fearsome, no doubt about it.

Myrmecia pyriformis

Thanks chrisss and welcome.

How's your weather in Vancouver?

We are still in drought in parts of Australia, particularly the southern states.
