    Red woodant

    This ant I shot a few weeks ago in one of our national parks (Hoge Veluwe NL).
    He was defending himself against some photographer approaching his house.

    Tom,

    This is a fantastic shot! Did you get any with more DoF? Did you get sprayed with formic acid?

    Willie or Jiro is fine by me.

    He sure looks like a very angry, Ant to me. I know how hard it is to make an exceptionally good macro shot so I have to commend you for trying it out and doing it. For me the 2nd image looks better on the sharpness issue but I like the pose and the angle on #1.

    The last one is a bit blurred, but the two previous photos work well.
