My new Sigma 10mm fisheye lens allows me to cozy right up to an open ant nest and take a shot both of the nest interior and the colony’s forest habitat.

The ants are Aphaenogaster fulva, perhaps the most common woodland ant in my area. This particular nest is typical: large cavities in well-rotted wood in a fully shaded forest.

  1. No doubt, this is perfect. Not often do I come upon a blog that’s equally
    instructive and interesting on web 2.0 site, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail
    on the head. This particular matter is an issue that not enough
    people are speaking intelligently about. It’s awesome that I was able to find this while searching for relevant topics.
