Inch Ant - Murray Lagoon, South Australia by 

While stopped for lunch in the carpark at the Timber Creek trail entrance near Murray Lagoon on Kangaroo Island, my eye turned to the small creatures beneath the table. Among them was this lone inch ant, quite the looker. He generally shyed away from the camera, until he realised that I wasn’t going away without a nice sharp portrait. At this point, he turned and faced the lens of my camera, flaring his pincers and assuming a defensive posture. Makes for a great picture don’t you think?

Conservation and creativity are our two strongest passions. Our nature photography extends into online video at NatureScope . We’re also currently producing a documentary film called Cuttlefish Country . All purchases of our work will go directly towards the film’s production. The film is due for release in 2013.

    amazing image. no wonder it hurts when they bite.

  • Thanks Pauline… yes, this character raised its abdomen and flared its pincers at me… would have been incredibly intimidating to a creature of its scale!
