Thought for the day: if you put one ant in a porcelain cup, it climbs out easily. Put 5 in a cup, none can climb out because they pull each other back in trying to climb on each other. Be the ant that climbed out of the cup!
Hard-working ants lift huge chili peppers over their heads as they march along on their hind legs toward their nest. The scene was captured by keen photographer Yahya Taufikurrahman, at his home in South Kalimantan, Indonesia.
This is a photo series featuring ants as the models. Photographer Andrey Pavlov uses a macro lens to capture the up close and personal lives of ants. Yes, the shots are staged by Andrey, but those are real ants doin’ their thang.
