This macro shot is that of a ant mimicking spider. I spotted this spider and almost ignored initially thinking it was an ant...but later at close inspection and it's very restless nature i trealised it was an ant mimick.

Id does look like an ant! But its eyes and the 4th pair of legs betrayed it.
Great shot of this amazing creature. Good its looks did not fool you and you took this pic!

Hello Krishnagopal,

Very nice capture of this odd spider. Good POV, DOF and focus. Very good light and natural colours.
