Very cool shot. It's amazing what you can capture with a 5050.

Thanks Alfred. I didn't realize until just now that I have a larger image in my folder of this shot. I was also advised by someone in a macro photo group that the thing in it's mouth is in fact it's tongue, not an aphid. I have another ant shot that's also a bit gross, but informative for those interested and I'll post it when I get a chance soon.

btw this kind of macro is the result of what I learned from Jens Birch when he was active here.
