Vry nice pics, and "drama". Not many ant pics here at Steve's, lots of bees and dragonflies. Nice to see a change. Do some more, those are interesting...

Heheh! Good commentary. These are really cool shots, Rodney.

Are these some of the famous, 2-meter, Australian ants that dine exclusively on live, saltwater crocodiles?

I really dislike ants, but these are very good pictures. I just don't want to get close enough to take a series like this.

Loved the shots and the commentary Rodney. The second shots my favorite, sort of reminds me of Sylvester Stallone in Cliff Hanger.

Cheers Ed

Rodny, nice shots of creatures we see every day but seldom think to photograph.

Nice detail of fast moving subjects!
