I have so many photos from the last few months that I want to share with you, but every time I think of blogging I get busy doing something else. However, today I was experimenting with my new little macro gadget for my iPhone, and one result astounded me, so I found some time for a quick post.
I was in my backyard checking out my peony buds which are just about ready to burst open, and I noticed tiny ants crawling all over the buds. Now, these were not your normal sized ants. If they were an eighth of an inch long I would be surprised. In fact, it took me a minute to recognize that they were actually ants. So, I decided to see if I could capture them with the macro lens, which proved to be quite difficult because as we all know ants don’t stand still. They are constantly on the move, working away. I did manage to grab a few shots though, and here is my favourite. It makes for kind of an abstract picture don’t you think?
