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.
