Taking the long way around by peax Taking the long way around by peax
Sometimes your tasks might seem pointless, but the problem is usually that you don't see the big picture. Everyone has to help if a community is to work.

-------- EDIT --------

I was told by a good friend of mine, Jimmy Vegas, that when you look at this picture you should have "Albert Herb - Spanish Flea" playing in the background for maximum experience rofl

nice macro you shot there and you use a littel ant to illustrate the point. i like the concept behind this Nod

Heheh! I like your description, you are absolutely right, but not many people realise your point.
To the more 'technical' stuff now, I like that little fellow over there, with his raised antenna, and the texture in the background serves its purpose very well. Congrats!

I can see every crack and irregularity in that wooden thingy, the plank or whatever it is. That's so weird. I feel like I'm looking into a weird fantasy world, where everything is about ten times as big as usual. Or more. I feel small. And I'm staring at an ant. Weird.

As you are Swedish, I assume you understand some Norwegian (yes, I'm from Norway). So I'll add one of my favourite poems by Inger Hagerup here...because that's what I thought of when I saw your photo:

Jeg er akkurat stor nok.
Fyller meg selv helt
på langs og på tvers
fra øverst til nederst.
Er du større enn deg selv

Ah, I love that poem...Hagerup is an excellent poet. In my opinion. Although, in your photo, this ant doesn't exactly look small....meh. But I think it fits anyway! As always, great shot!

(oh and if you're wondering why I write in English; it's because I prefer that. English is my favourite language. hope you don't mind.)

I love the description! I couldn't have said it better myself. :) (Smile) AND this is an awesome macro. So clear. Almost feels like I can reach out and touch it.
Like the shadow/lighting too.

Excellent macro. This is so detailed and clear. I love the little shadow and the way he's not just walking around, but seems to be looking at something. Perfect balance--you are good at knowing when to take photos with the subject on the side rather than centered. I love ants Heart :D (Big Grin)

wow! what a great shot. The position, the lighting everything. I bet its difficult to get a good pic of an ant, cuz they usually scramble so fast. The description puts it all into perspective, too
