How far down?

Very far!

I saw one ant wandering around the leaves I wanted to shoot and started to watch her. One leaf, then another. No other ants around and looked like she was lost.
She reached the tip of one and it was time to decided - jump or not.

A few glances down...

... and she changed her mind.

And all she needed is a nice, blue parachute! :)

Great macro of an ant...She tries for a bungee jumping but at the last moment she was afraid of the height i think :)

Have a nice day my friend...

That's why I gave her a parachute :D

...far! but thats no problem at all. he is not kamikaze :=)

How do you know? :D

The macrophotography is very beautiful, nice shoot friends 😊

Thanks a lot :)

Cool shots @ewkaw, very nice macros 👍😀
I have made similar a few weeks ago. Have a wonderful Sunday 🌞


Cheers and !BEER

Thanks! I wish I could see her eyes though...

Cheers :)

You're very welcome @ewkaw 😀

It's the same with my ant and the eyes. I think I'll get macro extension tubes for the Sigma for more magnification. The eyes of an ant should be better visible then.


Cheers and !BEER

Won't Sigma lose auto focus then?

I will tell you that in a few days, but I don't think so, because the extension tubes I ordered are with autofocus ... I'll see if it works 😉


Cheers and !BEER

Aha! That would solve the problem then.
I'm sure it will :)

I will tell you if it does and hope the results will be as expected 🙂


Cheers and !BEER

The photography is really amazing. sometimes it better to take some step back then going forward,

Especially if you know the forward is not gonna work.
Thanks for stopping by :)

ya, most time we don't even know it will work or not.

Very nice and sharp photos! I hope the ant got rescued by your parachute!!

Thanks!
Of course she did :P

She probably didn't see any ants down below so she thought the better of it.

Definitely no more ants... just more leaves.

Thank God the parachute saved her 😁

She is lucky I was there! :D

Indeed. Did she find her group?

I have no idea. I got what I wanted and left her alone.

Super photography as always 👌
That last photo of an ant parachuting had me in stitches as I laughed so hard, even before I tried to mimic a 'weeee' sound in a squeeky ant voice 🤣

Yeaaa that photo is my masterpiece :)
hahah now I tried to make that squeeky weee too. Ants are funny 🤣

An ant afraid of jumping :D

The little creatures also have their fears :p

Ahahahah yes :D
