A - Ant


Round 6 of ABC Wednesday, yey! For this round, I decided to post images of animals.

A is for ant. I am a person who really dislike ants, but ever since I started taking pictures of ants, I have grown to love them. Like what I've said in old posts, we have this hibiscus plant in our garden that serves as a home to lots of ants, and whenever I wanted to take pictures of anything, I would always go to our garden and take pictures of the ants.

The day I took this, I noticed a fold in the leaf that seemed to house a lot of ants' eggs. I aimed my lens on the opening of the leaf and spotted this ant biting an egg. The ants move fast, so taking this shot made me feel really good.

Great shot.

Reading what you've said in your side column - you're right. There are people with expensive cameras and equipment who still only take so-so photos and then there are those with far simpler cameras who produce little gems. Looks like you're one of the latter. :)

the shot is AMAZING, AWESOME. I like ants, unless they're in the house.

On behalf of the ABC Wednesday team, which I just joined, thank you!
