Up close with an Ant

I have always liked ants. As a child I would frequently establish an ant farm and watch the ants dig holes and move their eggs about their tiny tunnels.

Now as an adult I still find ants interesting, so it’ only natural that with the advent of new technology in microscopes, I have once again turned my eyes to ants.

The photograph below was taken by me with my new Digital Microscope. The ant is in the Genus Myrmecia, (Bull Ant). I have yet to identify the species.

Isn’t it cute!
