This was taken seconds before my cat trod on them. Sigh.

    nice one! are you not tempted to crop in tighter on the drinking ants? i've never seen ants drinking before.
  • Esther Simpson PRO 10y


    Yeah to the cropping, but I rather liked the little fellow wandering off at the right hand side.

    And as for the drinking, I'm afraid it's actually split honey, but when I faffed with the colour and contrast to try and make the ants show up better (my first real play with my PS Elements), it ended up like this... and again, I rather liked it :)

    That's fantastic. Please tell me you didn't accidentally discover some spilt honey and watched it for a long while though...

    Good detail. I like the textures too.

    Thank-you. There must be a name for that, but at this time in the morning, I'm not sure what it is :)

    I thought it was a mandelbrot fractal. Fantastic shot

    This is an amazing photo. I have never seen ants behave that way. Also, to get the lovely blue in there from the sky - excellent! Thanks for sharing with the Tags from A to Z group.
