Original Art Photography Series by @velimir #307 'Red Ant'

'Red Ant'






Ants are interesting creatures. The way they live, the way they work, the way they fend for themselves. It took serious effort to take this macro photograph of a moving ant. This guy just wouldn't stop for the world. :D

However, this is not a single shot. I photographed the ant separately from the surrounding shadows and then I composited them both in Photoshop for a better effect. The ant was taken on an almost completely grey surface. I think shadows do a pretty good job, therefore I've added them.

Colour scheme is very simple. The grey parts are in a slightly bluish tone, while the ant carries an orange accent. The insect is already in the centre of the frame, the colour is just adding an additional level. Well, I also wanted to make him a 'red'. :D

When I think of ants, I think of communism. People cannot function like ants no matter how hard they try. It is just not in human nature to adopt a similar scheme of behaviour and therefore all past attempts failed miserably and will continue to do so in the future.

Enjoy! :)

The surrounding shadows not only enhance the beauty but also reflects your perfect angle of photography.

Ants never stop. This is a good philosophy. If they are heading somewhere and we try to stop them, they will find another way.

They will climb. Maybe they'll break under. Or they will climb around it. What is clear, they will continue to look for other ways. This philosophy teaches us to never stop looking for ways to achieve goals.

ant think winter all summer. This is an important perspective. We can not be so naive to think the summer will last forever. So, ants collect food for their winter in summer. An ancient story says, "Do not build a house on the sand in summer." Why? Because it is important for us to think into the future. In the summer, we have to think about the storm. We must think about rocks while enjoying the sand and the sun.

ant think summer all winter. This is also very important. During winter, ants remind themselves, "this will not last long; we'll get out of here. "And on that first warm day, the ants come out. If it turns cold again, they will enter their nest again, but then they come out again during the first warm day. They can not wait to get out of their nest.

How much food will be collected by them during the summer to prepare in the winter? Everything they can. Outstanding philosophy: "Everything you possibly can".

For me, the red ant has an association with some danger. This was left from childhood, then we all knew that red ants are more dangerous because they can hurt bite :)
I wonder how much time you spent that would take a picture of this guy :) The shadows do very well work. They are the second most important element (after the ant) ​​of this photo.

I represent the murvey as very hardworking and grouped workers. They have a very developed collective intelligence. In fact, ants are the most intelligent insects. Having small sizes they can carry weight many times greater than their own weight. But the most impressive is their social structure. There are ants builders (workers) there are ants soldiers, and of course one should not forget about the ant uterus. Each ant performs its own function. Anthills also have a complex structure of buildings from different levels.

In addition, ants are able to enslave and use other plants and animals for their own purposes. They can wage wars and act according to a certain tactic and plan. We underestimate these guys :) Sometimes people are very reminiscent of ants. Everyone is in a hurry about his business. Everyone fulfills his own destiny. We are at war and conquering. We are trying to build an "idyll" and equality, but in fact we have a different result. Yes, we persistently continue to create the same thing and see the same result.

Good photo, thank you!

really very nice red ants..my dear friend.. @velimir.ant is a very small animal in the world. but you how doing this ant photography clearly.. ant think summer all winter. This is also very important. During winter, ants remind themselves, "this will not last long; we'll get out of here. "And on that first warm day, the ants come out.

welcome back sir @velimir, you are again with a very interesting photo, I like the red aunt, Red aunt are well known for there fast speed, aunt has really fantastic. yes, sir, the color scheme is matching, I really like the art color, but still, it takes me some moment from Pakistan. all around the work.
aunts are sometimes dangerous too, it has thank scare.

Wow red ant nice , this photography is so beautiful .

Keep good work every time .

Your post is always different i follow your blog everytime , your post is so helpful . I always inspire of your post on my steem work . Thank you for sharing @velimir

Ants are next to bees the most hard-working creature on our planet, but they are very undervalued, I think we can take an example of them

It was a work done with mastery to be able to detect even the colors in the habitat of this tiny insect, besides taking advantage of observing its own behavior of its kind but not human. That is why when we are induced to act we put resistance, because we are thinking beings,

@velimir. Uno de los insectos más trabajadores es la hormiga. Si te creo que fue muy difícil capturarlo, siempre me gusta observarlas, porque a pesar de la pesada carga que llevan cuesta no se detienen para nada. Excelente publicacion.

@velimir, I know the Australian red bull ants can actually kill you if you happened to break your leg and tripped on top of there nest.

@velimir, Las hormigas son perfectas realizando sus tareas para mantener el alimento en sus cuevas, sin nadies que las obligue ella trabanjan todo el dia. La foto le quedo muy calidad, excelente el marco que escogio. Muy buena publicacion.

Hi @velimir, Ant philosophy In his life, ants also recognize the division of tasks that are perfect. Large ants cut up food and keep it from foreign animals. :)

I really dig the background addition from various shots AND the text that details the how and why. Very very cool. Thank you for posting!

La foto está genial! Fotografiar una hormiga si que es un gran logro @velimir, te quedo estupensa fa fotografía. Y, lo que más me gusta de las hormigas, es que no trabajan solas sino en equipo, si una no puede va y busca ayuda hasta logarar el objetivo. Si una sola consigue el alimento, va y busca a las demás y luego las ves en una fila larga, cada una llevando su parte. Me encanta eso.

Awesome Red ant, thank you very much for your sharing to us brother @velimir, success always for you

This is a beautiful shot @velimir!!

Awesome Red ant, thank you very much for your sharing to us brother @velimir, success always for you

The average red and mound has about the same number of brain cells collectively as the average human. Something to consider next time you want to poison ants....

Yes, one of the hard working insects. I guess it was really hard to capture it in frame :D nice one

@velimir, Para mi las hormigas son sinonimosde trabajo, sin tener ningun patron ellas cargan todo el dia el doble de su peso para llevar lo neserario para tener que comer.Son perfectas. Y es verdad trato te tomarle una foto pero me parece muy dificil porque no paran para nada.

Nice photo.. :-)
