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."

Great shot, Brian.
