Oooh great shot! Is he just drinking for himself? Or does he take it back to the nest and regurgitate it for the colony?
Ray: She gathers for the tribe, Elizabeth.

I can hear it slurping from here!
Ray: That is a look of pure, unbridled pleasure upon her face, Chris!

All in red too.

Now there's a lucky fella. I'm sure others took advantage, too.
Ray: There were many red ants foraging here, Alan.
Cracking picture Ray.

Elles ont mis leur tenue de camouflage.
Ray: Les fourmis rouges sont des créatures si confiant qu'elles ne dérangent pas du tout d'être vues, Martine.
Camouflage is the name of the game here, Ray.
Ray: Actually, Mary, I think it is coincidence!

Red Ants [Mot Daeng] fear nothing, and have no interest in being invisible. By my observation, they are the Alpha Species in SE Asia.
Ants never seem to stop do they.
Ray: Ants are astonishing and successful, Brian...Sapiens could learn quite a lot from them!
really loving the deep reds here against the greens, Ray.
Ray: I was pleased with how the two heavy colours dominated this shot, Ayush.
you sure love to play with fire ants Ray... superb macro... but i would use a 300mm lens for this shot and hope that it turned outgrin

Ray: Quite often I end up with a few of them on my lens, Peter, and then a nip or two is likely.
