Ant Safari


I was in Mysore a few weeks ago. One dull boring afternoon, I set out into the 'vast expanses' of the portico of our home in search of some interesting ants. When you are looking for ants even a portico is a very very large place... except that you can easily cover it in less than an hour. :D

Framing a fast moving ant is not very easy...


Sometimes you realise that the huge orb that it is about to bite is actually your toe... you see the butt of that ant sticking from under the toe? I made a quick retreat after that shot...

Here is an ant in what is maybe the one of the most exotic locations it could be in... a pink hibiscus... my mom hates it when I crop the flower like that!! :D

Hey there...

Good to see you still posting regularly. I hadn't written for a long time while I was in the UK but I've tried to start again after coming back to India.

Please do keep writing. I somehow feel that everyone whose blogs I've followed, has now stopped or has grown more stingy in posting updates.

Hope to see something from you soon.

ooh! I like ants too... they're damn interesting creatures. Call me weird but I could spend quite sometime watching ants move around and communicate and carry food.
It's an awesome theme to click pics about! :)
