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 🙂

    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.

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

    In Peru they are orange… yellow seems surreal.

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

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