Stranger in a Strange Land
#Macro of an #ant inside a #flower. These black ants were herding #aphids, tending to them like a goat #herder to a goat. You can see the aphids in the background as black dots, while the ant was patrolling the perimeter likely due to my presence. Wanted to get a shot of the ant handling his herd, but he seemed more intent on defending them everytime I stuck my lens into the opening of the flower. Available on dlamb photography as cards, prints and framed pieces.

It is also part of my Macro collection on RedBubble, even available now as throw pillows and metallic prints.

It is also available @ 500px in print and for digital download and licensing.
