The death of an ant

I couldn’t resist photographing this morbid scene of an ant’s body suspended in a spider web. The eerie shape in the background is just the out-of-focus bark of a sycamore tree. I didn’t plan it that way, but the shadow certainly adds to the tone.

photo details:
Canon EOS 7d camera
Canon MP-E 65mm 1-5x macro lens
ISO 100, f/13, 1/250 sec
diffused twin flash
