Macro shots of ants have proven quite popular for me in the recent past…so here is another one! When these two started fighting (I presume that’s what they were doing…), they were both…ehm…complete. The photo captures a mid-state. In the end, the weaker ant ended up a curled ball of legs and antennas. This time, I did not use my usual macro setup (the one described in previous post), but my 135 mm F/2.8 Sears lens paired with a half-stack of extension rings. The focusing distance is about 30 centimetres, but the depth of field remains so insanely shallow at about 2 milimetres, so it’s a bit difficult to focus. Still, it works very well!
