I love to watch ants. Their toing-and-froing, busy foraging explorations and searching antennas!
The details of what they are doing can’t always be seen, but that is where I am grateful for macro-lens technology.
Spotting a newly formed entrance to a nest I could see these ants hard at work. Putting my camera down at their level I got to see just how hard they were working. Huge mouthfuls of sand being excavated and carried away.
Not only do I find it fascinating to watch, but I find the motion of ants going about their daily lives relaxing. I also find myself thankful that I don’t have to lift such weights, especially by just my jaw!
Ants might seems such tiny animals, but when I see them like this, I am struck with awe!
