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.
