Ant drinking honey

DescriptionBright sunshine and a better mood. I ended up sat in the garden watching various insects and arachnids. As an experiment to try and slow the ants down to shoot them I put what I thought was a small drop of honey by one of their paths. It spread into a lake about 1cm across, and one or two of the ants did stop to lap at it. Surprisingly it was gone in an hour. In the meantime I was having loads of trouble getting the camera into position here because of limited space for tripods, and the Edelkrone system is not as low or as easy to keep in line as I hoped.
