The Parting Shot for February 19, 2012

Hungry ants clamour to get their hands on a piece of chocolate brownie that had been left on a pile of leaves.
Known in Indonesia as the Rang-Rang, the insect lives in colonies where each
has their own role as either worker, drone or queen.

  1. Never cared for ants — but as pictured here they are beautiful, almost elegant creatures.

    Back in the day I had a macro lens and it was great fun to use. However, my favorite, default lens was the 210mm zoom.

    • Yeah. I’m not a bug person at all. Not afraid of them, nor do they freak me out. Just not a fan of them. But I love photos of insects like this. The detail we cannot see with our naked eyes. Magnificent!

Go ahead... I can hear your thoughts. Please share with the rest!
