  1. oh yeah – how do you know that ant is so farsighted? :p

  2. Was he making eye contact?
    Looks dreamy, like he’s going to ski downhill any minute on those soft petals.
    Another lov-er-ly macro, Mike. (You would have loved a young fir I ran across in a campground a couple of years ago. BIG ants had overtaken the trunk and it was like watching a small city. Everybody had their own job to do. Unfortunately, I didn’t have a good macro lens back then.)

  3. That’s nice, Mike. It does look like the ant is about to slide down a lovely silk scarf or something.

  9. What an amazing piece of art in color and composition! I’m stunned. If you would like to contribute with some pictures to my site for artistic photographers I would be more than happy! Hopefully you could find some inspiration there too.

  10. your photos are inspiring and SO very welcomed while we wait out what seems to be an impossibly long winter. I can’t wait to try some of your methods, as you’ve shown some very ‘out of the box’ photos that I’ve had in my mind for awhile. This photo shows that the entire subject doesn’t need to be shown to be interesting and appealing.. if anything it makes me want to peek down inside ‘where they live’ even deeper. The colors are just fabulous! I’m now convinced I need to follow that inner voice that says it’s not about identifying the insect- but portraying them in a way that is a bit mystical.. and certainly magical.

  11. Thanks everyone, … and appreciate your thoughts and comments on this one.

    Cindy, … after reading what you wrote, I can easily see that you understand the overall picture, … or, the overall picture that is simply “you”.
    You have seen that inner vision, … and now you are on your way!
    Now enjoy the ride!!

  13. Thanks William, and your journal is one that I will have to visit again here soon, as it is “very well” put together!
    I like it!!

  14. Hey Mike, I can’t seem to find an email address for you here in your site. I’d like to feature you on Artist Hideout if you are willing?
