In a Macro Mood 3 - Getting Antsy

by Oppuku Chappani March. 07, 2020 550 views

Minutes into the attempt to go macro on these workers, i was in panic mode. No way i was going to capture any shot at the speed they were moving in. Took me a while to try planting sugar bombs on the surface, to make them stick around and it worked, in parts. As a bonus, i ended up discovering these ants were actually amber-brown and not black as i thought.

Awesome macros! I still can't believe you captured these with an FZ200. Creative thinking with the sugar bombs.

Thanks, the fz200 holds it own, but with raynox macro lens it really surprises you with a wow.
