the only thing that makes forest ants even more active and aggressive, is when the sun has really heated the hole anthill up.
these ants did not shy away from anything – not even a lytro lightfield camera. :)
pictures were taken in creative mode. i had a few ants sitting on the front part of the camera at one point, and wanted to try the zero minimum focus distance thing in creative mode. however, they stayed on the black plastic part and were so furious that they kept spraying formic acid on it, so it was me who eventually shied away.
more are available in my lytro photo album
also: i can’t wait to see these in 3D, when lytro releases the feature!
