Alex Wild on insects, science, and photography
…also has a hard time righting itself.
Cephalotes maculatus, unhappily upside-down

An assist from the photographer was needed to get the ant back on her feet.
Posted in: Ants, fun.
Love the colour combo of the flanges and the setae against the dark body, what a beautiful ant!
This is too cute.
That’s just cruel, to flip them over on paper! They have far less trouble on bark
And gorgeous photos of one of my favorite turtle ants.
I never thought an ant could be so adorable!
How do you get so much dept of field when your subjects are moving?
Flash! Almost everything I shoot is with an off-camera flash, diffused.
That is one seriously beautiful ant! Love the shots Alex.
