Anton the Ant On Foxglove by Barrie Woodward

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

Tiny ant, one of dozens crawling around the stalk of the foxglove, occasionally one would venture on to the flower and then up inside, before returning back to the shade of the stalk.

The leaves, flowers and seeds of this plant are all poisonous to humans and some animals.

My pictures are taken with a Sony DSC-HX1. What you see is pretty much what comes from the memory card, with maybe a touch of rotation and or cropping.
I probably wouldn’t be taking so many pictures if it weren’t for the camera. It has been worth every penny as it has captured some great memories since I got it in 2009.
Feel free to comment on any of the pictures. I’m all for learning how to improve.
