Very nice done. These are small and hard to catch in a proper DOF. Moreover the details on the melting snow forms a nice pattern as a "BG" (because in's not really a BG); it also complements well the ant as colours and shades.

Hello Monika that's another fascinating capture and a very close one considering their small size. The ice has made an excellent backdrop with great quality of light, superb detail on the ant with perfect composition. Very well done.

Something magical is in photos with insects on ice. Your brain shouts - insect? on ice? impossible! ;-) Poor frozen ant, detailed and well seen, but I think BG made from crystals is even better. Amazing and unique composition of two elements from two different worlds. Good note. I hope we'll forget about snow at least to next December!

Trčs originale ce type de prise d'insecte sur la neige fondante. Le contraste est parfait et la netteté bonne.
Félicitations et merci pour l'envoie.

I shall call your image--"Fire and Ice." Very good image and note. I remember the Red Ants in France where I lived, they did not bother anyone until you came too close to their nest site, then look out....
Very good image,

unusual, creative and nice picture! Special and good BG, amaizing details, colors and exposure, only a bit cenetred, but´s my opinion.
Have a nice day

The colours and textures in the ice are amazing! Exposure is well managed, I think this could be very tricky. Excellent detail as always and an interesting note. Nice post.

Hi Monika, you do have a habit of finding things it unusual places, I've never seen an ant on ice before. Lovley image, well done and no viruses :-)
