I sometimes get requests for stylistic pictures of dead ants. From pest control industry folks, usually. And I always have to beg off. Somehow, with my global image library of hundreds of different ant species, I’ve had nothing but live insects. Dead bugs never held much aesthetic appeal, I guess.
Well, Pest Control People. Just for you I’ve sold out. Here, at last, is your ex-ant.
(Incidentally, this ant wasn’t even dead. It was knocked out with CO2 and walked off 5 minutes later.)
