Me and My Shadow

Me and My Shadow, photo by Harold Davis. View this tiny tiny sugar ant larger.

In this wet and rainy weather, the sugar ants invade our house. Looking, I guess, for food and shelter.

This one is tiny, about 2.4 millimeters long (that’s a little less than 3/32 of an inch). If you look at him closely, you can see his eyes. (You may need to view the photo larger to really see the eyes).

Dare I admit that this ant was caught in museum gel? Even so, he wasn’t still. I photographed him with my Lens Baby 2.0 with the smallest aperture ring (f/8) and stacked macro filters (pretty close to right up against the ant!). ISO 200, and 1/15 of a second, using a tripod.
