Artist's Description

I was taking random shots of rose bushes in our back yard in 2008 when I saw a faint dark shadow through the translucent new petals. I was curious, because this rose, called First Love, is a delicate pink, with no other streaks. (229 views on 31 December 2010.)

Then I realised the dark shadow was moving upwards. Suddenly, this ant popped its head out for a few seconds and I just about had time to swing the camera up to shoot one frame before it disappeared again. I waited about twenty minutes for the ant to re-appear, but it didn’t oblige.

I do not crop, enhance or post-edit my images in any way. Shot with a Pentax K100D at F4.5, 1/180th of a second, ISO 200, while I was testing a Pentax-DA 1:2.8mm macro lens.
