That's how we treat our ants in South Africa! ...With care!!! That mini hair dryer actually is an empty snail shell. I just wander how this little creature mange to find its nest with covered eyes! Amazing hard working creature indeed!

Hello George,
An amazing macro of an ant carying a small shell. The sharpness is just right without too much sharpness where in focus and the focussing where it is needed. The lighting is great and provides a fine well composed BG with natural colours.
Well done and thanks for shring this and your constructive critique on my Berberis image.
Kind regards,

Hello George,
Excellent macro with the sharp focus just on the right place. Beautiful natural colours. Very good DOF and OOF BG.

Hello George,
What a lovely capture and perfect title.
Great image with amazing details, clarity and focus.

Hola George

Nueva hormiga y nueva imagen fabulosa, perfectamente contrastada con ese fondo arenoso, y un peerfecto POV. Nitidez perfecta.

Un saludo de Antonio

Hello George friend,
Ha.... ha... ha....! :) Certainly, this has made me laugh!

Ciao Geroge. Good DOF here and excellent details. Indedd a superb capture.


Hello George,
WOW, this is cute. It truly looks like it is under an hairdryer. Very well done and thanks for sharing.

Hallo George
Sharp eye you had to have noticed this interesting find. It must have been fascinating to look at this ant operating and going about with the shell on its head. A lovely macro, with details well seen especially the sand and very, very small stones on the surface. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
