Some ants playing on a peony bud in the late afternoon sun. Lots of wind, so I had some focus problems.

Tripod, 25mm extension tube and some cropping here.

Interesting play on light here and what a great look at that tail end that looks like it could hurt you.

The focus on the ant is spot on, it looks to me. I like the oof one, making it look like they're playing a game of hide and seek!

My eye is drawn to the dark red part of the bud. I think I would have cropped just above that. It's hard to shoot in the wind--I've had that problem, too.

Very cool. My peony buds aren't quite this big yet.

I agree with Sevlow . ants are darn hard to get .. think if you had been a little closer and had your ISO a little lower, you might have gotten more saturation in the ant.

You did well to capture these, I can never seem to get a decent shot of ants, they just seem to be too busy!
