Amazing - if you did videos they'd be like Oxford Scientific Films!

That's truly a wonderful shot Brian. It is not just a "let me see how close I can get shot", it has a story as well. Good composition and fairly good control of flash highlights. Well done!

Thanks for the comments all :)
I suspect the ant thought the aphid was producing an extra large drop of honeydew :)

"Hmmm...this honeydew drop is crunchy on the outside yet juicy on the inside. Not so sweet though." ;D

Great shot, Brian. :)
