Ant and Popcorn

Copyright Jeff Ball 2008

For the next few weeks I have asked friends to choose a number between 1 and 527 which correspond with folders in my archive. Each day I will use a different number chosen and create a piece from the photos in that folder. This piece was chosen by Christine Zipps with the # 11.

I have always been fascinated by ants. I went through a period in 2008 when I did a lot of experimental shots with ants. This shot was taken with an old set of bellows on my digital camera with a Russian lens I found online. The field of focus was so narrow that it was difficult to get an entire ant in focus. This ant was eating a piece of popcorn on my kitchen floor.

You can also find a time lapse video of these ants on my site http://jeffballphotography.com/?p=144
