Good stuff. I've tried on many occassions to take ant photos but have never been successful. Maybe this will help.
Just read this post today.
Funny, I was playing around with my 60mm macro yesterday, and took a short video of some ants at work in my backyard.
I saw a small line of them, and so I put down a piece of food from my cats' bowl, and watched them go at it.
Looks small on you-tube, but the full file is amazingingly clear.
Sorry for the bad focus, as i was handholding the camera and adjustingthe focus manually.
Next time, I'll use a smaller opening to get better .
All my photos are taken with recycled pixels.
Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
Wisdom, is knowing not to serve it in a fruit salad.
Got to try this one day. Good tips, thanks.
