David and Goliath by KeldBach David and Goliath by KeldBach
This fearless little guy (a Black Garden Ant) totally spoiled my photo session today as he would chase away any wasp or fly that landed on my strategically positioned apple. He simply bit them in their legs. Oh well, at least I got this rather unusual shot :)

60mm macro lens + 48mm of extension tubes + macro twin flash kit. Also see:

You must have been REALLY close to it all with that set-up! Excellent result though - the ant did you a favour on this occasion :nod:

Thanks, Anna. Yes, I was pretty close and also got stung a couple of times by the wasps. And that little ant was quite a brave fellow to watch :D
