I love how his abdomen is out of focus! It creates a really nice focal point at his head!

Ok that ant is really well done, to the point that it triggers my 'EW ANTS!' reaction. :D

Ants are such amazing insects I have seen three hives for a single colony. I've watched as a single ant dragged and item twice its size 50ft to the 2nd hive

Very cute little ant. :D

Although they're cute and nice to love, we have them everywhere here. Out in the yard, in the house, on the food, on tables, chairs, on anything and everything. And their bite stings real bad. LOL ^^;

Ouch! D: I've never lived anywhere that has stinging ants. Just cute little brown ones, mostly. We did recently have an ant problem in our new house, though, and I felt so bad having to kill the ones that got in the house. T^T

We have cute little brown ones too. And small little red ones that sting so bad. And the big fire ants outside. We'll, be glad yours are the friendly kind. :D

Really nice job. The perspective and the out of focus effect makes the ant pop out.

Whenever I see an ant I am reminded of Anty from Honey I Shrunk the Kids.

Therefore, I hate killing them.

And wow for doing this in a few hours. It's very life like.

LOL, I was thinking of that movie, too. I bawled my eyes out every time that damn ant got itself killed. :cries:
