Artist's Description

Featured in Closeups in Nature

I love macro photography because it forces me to see the little things in our world. I became fascinated recently by an ant colony, photographing many aspects of ant life and behaviour. In this photo, I think I captured the enormous strength on an ant. If we were able to assume that this ant was 6 ft. long, then the stone it is carrying must weigh 500 pounds. The image was captured on Pender Island, British Columbia, Canada, using a Nikon D700 and a Nikkor f4 200 mm micro lens handheld (ISO 1600, +0.33 EV, f10, 1/400).
