thanks for the site..found this guide to shooting ants that might come in handy for those who like shooting them
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.
