Here are some pictures of my ants.  Once I get better with my camera I will put better pictures up, but for now here are a few pictures which you can click on to get bigger versions.


More to follow soon.

KK, first things first; what camera and lens am I using?


I currently own the following:


Sony SLT-A58 Digital Camera

Sony Alpha 100mm F2.8 Macro lens


They are pretty good for their price range and a good steeping stone to the more profressional cameras and lesnes.

Advice: When taking photographs of ants with a macro lens, you’re probably better off trying to use manual focus rather than automatic focus, though it’s down to individual preferences in the end.  I just find auto-focus a little slow at tomes and it tends to focus on what it wants rather than what you want.  I tend to use manual focus and move the whole camera in and out of range.
