This is such a nice capture and three to boot. I just don't see how this image did not make it into the top 10. I am placing it in my favorites.

Stunning work! Amazing detail. The depth of field is exceptional and the gray tones are perfect. A 10 from me!

Great macro shot and excellent detail. Composition and direction of the ants works nicely. I would have liked this shot in color though.

incredible capture. perfect timing for this. is that a magnolia?
love the b&w treatment, and the way the ants form a leading line.

Nice peony & ants. I assume the b&W works better with the green/pink contrasts.

wow, i never cease to be amazed at the detail on these bug shots. wonderful picture, i hope this one at least makes top 10. would have been nice if the ant furthest to the right were a little less blurry, but great nevertheless.

Great ant shot. You can see the tiny hairs and spikes on them, even the last one's eyes. Great job on such a tiny subject.

I like the shot, although I think it would have been even better in color.
