The world's best animal architecture - in pictures

The world's best animal architecture - European red wood ant nests in Hessen, Germany. In comparison to their body size of just one centimetre, red wood ants build skyscrapers. Their anthills can reach more than 2m high and 5m wide. Inside the tower, there is a mega system of paths so that no water can penetrate. They often transport building materials that weigh 40 times their body weight. Photograph: Ingo Arndt in pictures
