Ants are truly amazing creatures. I wrote something about them once that was published in the newspaper, but haven't yet been able to take a decent photo of them. This shot tells a lot about them.
Congratulations.

That is really a nice macro and a fortuitous capture, and a great show of strength. Beautiful color, light, brokeh, nice.

I never got a chance to go through the pics in this challenge until now, so only just spotted this.

Wonderful shot, would have got a 10 for sure (though as an ex entomologist I may just be a little biased ;)

Congrats on the ribbon. I tried to shoot some ant shots for the challenge too but they didn't even come out 1/10th as well as yours. Great work.

Really great photo, good composition.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/19/2004 04:56:37 PM
Great idea! Nice shallow DOF - creates a wonderful dappled background. Focus doesn't seem sharp enough on the ant itself.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/19/2004 10:37:22 AM
the ant??????
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/18/2004 01:00:16 PM
Is the ant really holding up the blade of grass as it appears? These truly are strong little creatures, and this is an amazing portrait of one.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/18/2004 03:28:18 AM
Beautiful picture. Couldn't think of a single thing you could do to make it better as it's perfect just the way it is. You managed to find a very photogenic ant!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

My pick for a ribbon. Congratulations on a fine shot.

I expected to see more ant pictures than I have.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/17/2004 01:39:07 AM
GREAT strength, composition, lighting and focus
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/16/2004 02:59:56 PM
Nice colors and clarity. I like the detail that you picked up on the leaf.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/16/2004 02:18:01 PM
Great shot, my second place pick, good color, focus, and compostion. 9
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/16/2004 01:39:27 PM
Such a quietly beautiful image! It's hard to critique this. Perhaps a sharper focus on the ant and blade--but I think the subject and depth of field make that difficult. Bumping you up on the scores for the second time.....
  Photographer found comment helpful.

One of the best pictures at meeting this challenge’s theme; I gave it high marks but I gave a few others higher just due to the fact IMO that the right side is more unfocused and it unbalances the picture in my eye's when I look at it. Still it is a good shot. Deserving of an 7.69 in my book and since I cant score this like that :) … 8 Good Luck in the challenge.

really nice macro. Focus is good, composition great. Subject fits very well with the challenge. I give it a 9.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/16/2004 06:48:32 AM
Great shot, shame about the noise levels... did you try NeatImage? Used on the background you could really make the foreground pop out. Shame the ant isn't sharper, I can see you've already tried sharpening in Photoshop.

Nice Pic... I had the same idea for this challenge. Went camping this last weekend but could not find the right ant carrying something big (You would think that I could find something in South Africa?). I like your picture and the DOF. Great Idea :->

Nice capture - definitely shows strength.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/14/2004 06:00:48 PM
I like this. Pound for pound, insects are among the strongest creatures around, so it fits well with the theme. Well exposed. Nicely framed. Effective DOF. 8

A ribbon winner in my book. Wonderful macro and great depth of field. Perfect choice for the challenge theme as well. 9

Wow! Awesome macro. I wanted to do this for the challenge, but my camera won't do it. Very nice job! I hope it grabs a ribbon. 10

This was the first thing that came to my mind for this challenge but ants are hard to come by in Ohio this time of year. Great job.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/14/2004 01:25:42 PM
Great capture! Amazing what the world will show us if we take the time to look.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/14/2004 12:13:31 PM
Good, good composition, light and color. The focus is just a bit soft. Looks like a shot from the Discovery Channel. Nice one. Good luck in the challenge.

This is the shot I wanted to take, well done.

Classic..
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/14/2004 04:30:03 AM
I'll score this... 9. Not because it's an excellent photo but because I liked the idea myself, but unfortunatelly, could not find an ant :) (still too cold for them here...)
Too blurry!
