Figure 2

Synchronized manipulation of ants by fungi. A sun position chart of the death grip. Solar altitude is represented by the yellow bars and plotted against the y-axis and the biting times are the red circles and plotted on the x-axis in solar time (this is true local time accounting for longitude and different from Time in Figure 1). The red circles are stacked to prevent overlapping. At 11:47 two ants bite so only 15 circles are visible though 16 ants were recorded.
