And almost surreal!
Are you sure you didn't create this digitally?

Thanks geomez!
Yes I'm sure.
I have tried to catch this kind of action photo of an ant many many times and this spring I finally got it.

Most excellent. I was thinking about entering a macro shot in the contest. I don't think I will now.

Amazing clarity and timing!
I am working on a biology textbook and we would love to use this photo in the book. I just sent you a private message.
Cheers!

I might as well throw out my macro lenses - there's no point now.

Fantastic.
