The Best of Myrmecos 2008

  1. Great stuff! Looking forward to the beginning of next year’s work. My five year old daughter loves looking through the photos as well; you never know where that could lead.

  2. Wonderful, Alex! Congratulations for another year of amazing photos! Hope you keep providing us with your excellent contributions in myrmecology and nature photography.

    All the best,

    You have set a very high standard but of all the images I have seen from you there is only one that images that has it all it called Lonely it just has very thing and I am surprise that it is not among your finest.

  5. Fantastic work Alex! Someday when I get rich, I’m going to buy some prints for my home office. But for now while I’m dirt poor, I’ll just enjoy your blog for free (sorry!).
