[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [Polish]
Myrmica is a genus of ants within the ant family, Formicidae. It is widespread throughout the temperate regions of the Holarctic. The genus consists of around 200 known species, and additional subspecies, although this figure is likely only to rise as soon as Chinese and Neartic fauna lists are revised. The genus contains a number of inquiline species (commensal symbiosis) that utilise the Lepidoptera family Lycaenidae.

Hi Roma,
A very good macro!
I like the close approach and sharp details got on the insect.
The twisted pose works pretty well for this composition, and I like the inclination and colours of the background.
Well done and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

bonjour roma
une tres bonne macro,il aurait peut etre fallut un peu plus de profondeur de champ pour avoir le bout de l'abdomen au "foyer".

Hello Roma,
A very fine macro of this "red" ant in a strange pose. Interesting sharp details and fine colours. Well composed too.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Hello Roma,
these small and busy insects are difficult objects for photographers. However, you managed well to present this winged specimen including fine structural details, such as eyes and antennae.
Best wishes, Peter

Stosunkowo rzadko zdarza sie zobaczyc dobre zdjecie mrowki. Tobie sie udalo ladnie ja pokazac. Interesujaca poza, dobry detal. No moze troszke artefaktow w tle zwiazanych moze z kadrowaniem a moze z kompresja.
Ogolnie, bardzo fajna fotka!

Tym zdjęciem mnie oczarowałaś.
Nigdy mi się nie udało zrobić makro mrówki.
Wielkie brawa!!!!!!!!!!!.
