Today, on a day off from work, I decided to explore the garden. Not a lot of insects out there, but I spied some small black ants on some Cherry Tree logs. So to get them to pause I baited the log with some small blobs of golden syrup.
Here’s the best of the shots from today. Taken on MPE-65mm at 1x with flash except where stated.
Here you can see the ant slurping in the syrup.
The first of two shots, I decided to entitle “Soccer Ants” as they made me think they were playing footie.
The second soccer ant shooting…
Lastly a higher magnification (x3) of the ant slurping on the syrup.
