When I saw this ant, first I was amaze by the size. Them I liked the detail of the different colors of the legs. After that I noticed that it has something on the head. At first I thought it was some kind of decoration of this ant. But, as I got closer and closer…….humm….. I found it was not.

Actually the big and powerful ant was been attacked by a very small ant which was biting the antenna. Curious, don’t you think so? I wonder what happened next……

Hi Gabriel,

Mais uma macro muito interesante desta formiga, com o dof perfeito que ate da para ver a outra formiguinha a brincar com as antenas

Well done, you do have a great POV and details all in. I wonder if the little ant has lost it abdomen.

This picture seems telling a very thrilling story. I really wonder what happens next...
Beautiful details, and focus centers your attention on head where you see the second ant. Nice details and sharpness. Patrick
