Hello Czaldy!
Nice composition and good documentary picture but these are not ants (Formicidae, Hymenoptera) but bugs (Heteroptera). These specimens do not have wings because they are larvae :>
Best regards,

This is a great photo, both from an biological but also artistic point of view. The colours are just amazing and the composition is very good.

To bad but I am out of happy green faces today but will come with one tomorrow!
Back with a happy green face!

Regards/Bengt Falke

I agree with Falke! Great artistics and photography. The species are also very interesting. These are very unusual ants, at least if you come from Europe you may think so. The colors are very bright and I wonder whether they have any biological function.
Great close up!
