An image search for one of my favorite ants, the Atta leafcutters, returns a jarring juxtaposition of terrorists and ants:
Light posting over the last couple days, I’m afraid. Our kitten Mingus came down with a little kitty fever this morning of 106º (That’s 41ºC for the Fahrenheit- impaired) and is spending the night in the pet hospital, enough of a distraction to derail my blogging schedule.
Don’t despair, though, there is freshy bloggy material on the way. I’ve been writing drafts on a number of photography topics in the background. Things to come include:
- Image post-processing (what happens after a photo is taken)
- The importance of backdrop
- Photographing uncooperative insects
- Cameras and lenses for macro
If there is any topic in particular you would like me to post about, email me or let me know in the comments below.
Update (12/12/07): Mingus is back from the little kitteh hospital- he’s doing much better!
Zut alors! This blog seems to have developed a following of Frenchmen. The shame of it is, I studied French for 5 years in High School and don’t remember a word of it.
The French ant-enthusiast forum Acideformik looks like a fine place to hang out on the intra-webs. Most online myrmecology forums are populated by 12 year-olds relating their experiences fighting red and black ants, or trying to trade in their allowance to import a colony of exotic bulldog ants (to kick the butts of both red and black ants, I gather). However, the French are over there having book discussions and contemplating the finer points of petiolar morphology. I’m jealous.
Welcome to my blog.
