Above are images are my overall favorites of all of the pictures I have taken. Click on the images for more info about the subject, and links to the projects they were from (if possible). The gallery below is for my photos of the week (more about that in the description of that gallery).
Week #14 theme: Excited
When the photographer disturbs their nest, Myrmica workers remove larvae from the sunlight in an excited frenzy.
This is my photo of the week for week #1. The word I chose for this image was texture. I think this image does a great job at comparing different levels of texture. I attempted to remove as much texture as I could from the background to add to the subject.
More about the subject; This is an Odontomachus monticola trap Jaw ant. It is from my collection of specimens, I used to have a colony of these but sadly they passed away, so I preserved them. I did my best to attempt to spread this specimen.
It's officially summer here in Colorado, Which means I'm technically done with this assignment for last year, but I think instead of doing weekly photos, I'll just post some extras here.
This image features a beautiful shot of Pelidnota punctata, or the spotted june beetle, peering over a stick. I raised this individual from a larva, it's perfectly fitting that it eclosed on the 1st of june.
