Hi dear Jay ,
nice shot with great focus and shadow.
well composed ane excellent light.
thanks for sharing
Hi upside-down Jaapkop
(Chuckle, in reference to your intro photo.)
This is a rather fascinating shot of this carpenter ant with its black/red/black colour scheme. The backlight resulted in an interesting profiled cast in the shadow of the ant.
The composition is fine while the notes link up well to explain the dark "trench" from whence the ant appeared. (Do I see a couple of ant eyes lurking in the dark?) I believe the notes also motivate (in part) the rather unfortunate and probably unnecessary removal of the "Weatherbomb" posting. Due to the slight coloured log, appropriately serving as BG, the ant stands out very well. The colours and the details are well defined and the exposure was well handled.
Well done and TFS.

A really good close up of this carpenter ant.Very good detail and colour saturation.The wee shadow is wonderful.Nicely done.TFS
Hi Jay. Very fine macro, showing a lot of details. Apart from the ant itself the wood has a good grain which shows up very well too. TFS. Murray.
very nice shot of the ant, looks huge from this POV and the shadow increases this even more. Colors and details are very nice. Very well composed, great story telling and the pictures suits your tale very well.
this is very close and it looks huge, almost like a white shark;-)
You captured the ant with fine details and with a nice compo.
The shadow makes it more interesting almost a bit scary.

Good ant capture, and enhanced by the fine shadow!
It is a fine close-up, and unless this guy is bigger than usual, much bigger, your equipment works well...
A well composed and educational image!

Impressive macro, the ant is seen with great size and detail here. I like also texture and ant shadow.
