A carpenter ant (Camponotus mus)capting my presence but not sure about the danger, it put the abdomen under it body, surely touching my house´s wall were it was because can receive with hairs some vibrations. Notice the open jaws ready to defense.
Homemade macro. Changes in contrast and bright

Gracias por el comentario Hernán ... y es que tengo una canon 400D que es un churro. Un año y tres reparaciones; ya no se si es la luz, la cámara, pero parece un sonajero.
Curiosa e interesante tu toma, parece por la pose y los colores de ciencia ficción.

No dejas de sorprenderme, esto si que es aumento, hasta se distingue la arista serrada de las mandibulas.
Un saludo, Felipe.

Una fabuloa macro considerando el tamaño de la hormiga.
Buenos detalles y comentario explicativo.
Saludos Hernán, JL.

Hi Hernan,
Wonderful macro shot and you have done a great job of portraying it. Very impressive sharpness and spot-on focus on its head. Great lighting and pose. Marvellous composition. Kudos.

Belle macro, manquant un peu de focus, excellenet POV.

Hello Hernan,

Very well done,

PS: Sorry, I forgot the points, I'll do it tomorrow

What a movement, what a shot, wow! I like it, the light is bouncing on the ant, it is a little blurred but that gives a fantastic action effect. Great macro!
