Una vista de esta hormiga, Camponotus brullei, donde se pueden apreciar sus "argumentos", desde luego que indefensa no parece.

Hello Benito and welcome to TN.
This an excellent ant portrait, perhaps the best I've seen on this site. Excellent job post processing, clear and sharp with great DOF & use of flash.

Hello Benito,
a fscinating frontal view of the ant clearly showing its strong mandibles. Also the eyes and the antennae are very sharp as is also true for the tarsal claws of the left midleg seen at the lower right edge of the picture.
Best wishes, Peter

Me gustan las fotos de hormigas. Esta es un magnífico ejemplo con muy buen acercamiento y enfoque sobre los puntos más interesantes. Muy buena.

Wow, fantastic macro. Beautiful details!
Good colors and definition, bye Tom

Un placer para los sentidos, directa a mis favoritas, mis sinceras felicitaciones, yo acabo de comprar el Raynox DCR-250 y espero poder acercarme así algún día, aunque primero tendré que conseguir también un 150mm :)
Gracias por compartirla y un saludo, Felipe.
