Day 139~366

An interesting time at the tree today. Whilst I was there a fracas was going on between 2 yoofs, yelling and swearing and shouting fit to bust.  I just kept my back to it all and carried on shooting. I had spotted some tiny ants running down the trunk of the tree so thought I’d macro one, urk, them blighters run fast, I’d see one on the tree then when I looked through the view finder couldn’t see it, they’re well camouflaged for tree bark.  In the end I saw one heading to a yellow patch of lichen, focused it and took a shot as the ant went over it! Can’t tell you how many duff shots I got 🙂

  1. Well done, FR. Ants are far from easy to shoot, moving as fast as they do. Looks like it was worth the ‘duff shots.’
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Beautiful image, almost a bit abstract with the patterns and colours.

  4. The ants are Orange? The yellow here is lichen, the ant is dark brown. 🙂

  6. I always love macros of lichens and rock and bark – such a tiny, tiny world to see.
