    Even the ANTS are cool in Australia! We only have the very boring black ants and teeny tiny golden ones…

    A colourful little Aussie probably doing its recycling job 🙂

    A beautiful abstract!

      Thanks – although I probably would not call this an abstract?

    Maybe he’s an IRISH ant just visiting Australia ! 😉

      Maybe – and maybe he followed the many Irish people over there?

    That’s one beautiful ant, even hung upside down for your picture. 🙂

    A wonderful close-up. Great detail and colors. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a green ant before.

    Great shot!

    He looks big, too. Look even better if you cropped it in close around him.

      He wasn’t very big. I know that you do not see the ant so much, but I would also like to show the structure of the burned wood. And the light wood at the top plus the background at the bottom frames the burned wood with the ant nicely …….

    Looks like he could be a bit nasty… Sure looks like he means business when compared to our tiny little ants…

      They were not nasty I think: The local people were eating them. I tried a coupple – not bad 😉

    What a cool looking ant! Love him! 🙂

    I don’t usually like insect photos, but I do really like this, Truels, there’s the combination of abstraction and realism at the same time and an interesting ant too.

      Thanks for those words, Lynn – they could be my own too 🙂
