      Dear John,

      JK> Dimitry - one comment on your feedback. You said:
      >> da.n.dako.tiya.m - maybe a misprint
      >> 'a.n.dakotiya.m'?

      It doesn't make much sense in the sentence. From where the eggs were
      taken - they were on the end of the stick? Why?
      Or do bees lay eggs?

      a.n.dakotiya.m would make sense as a great number (mass) of (ants') eggs.

      Metta,
