If you drip it... ?

Well, it looks too viscous to be water, that's good. I'm guessing honey or sap or something in that range. The focal blur at the foreground is very distracting, takes the eyes away from the focal point; raising the angle just slightly might have helped with that. Good close-up shot.

I like this picture, except the main subject ( the ant ) is a little out of focus.

I wish we were a little closer or there were more of them.

Can't tell what the liquid is, but the focus and detail on this shot are great! -9- Mav

I think your DOF is too narrow here and would have liked a brighter and more in focus foreground. Also, I"m a little confused as to what you are trying to say, that more ants/insects will come?

the part in focus is really cool .. i think it should be closer to the viewer and get rid of that out-of-focus \"what the heck IS that\" right in the middle of the bottom :)
