Macro photography that is well done can introduce a whole new world of subject matter to photography fans. As these extreme close-up photos of ants show, there is a beauty that exists at such a level that we rarely get to see it. These are some of the best macro shots we have seen. Don't forget to check out the resources at the end of the post if you want to find out how to emulate these shots.

it's a nightmare to look to these ants so close.
Thanks for sharing. Do check out some out some of my ant photographs at https://naturemagnified.blogspot.com/2010/01/fas…
Great photographs. You really need to try shooting macro, especially insects, to truly appreciate how hard is to make such photographs. Great DOF and great lighting.
there are some lovely photos on this post.
taking shots of ants really isn't easy. getting them to stand still is a nightmare as i found out last weekend. aparantly if you put them in the freezer for a while they slow down a bit….anyone else heard of this technique?
it is absolutly AMAZING that these images can be captured the way they did….
Those are beautiful pictures, they look so scary up close.
amazing. incredible how macro these are.
This is just fantastic photography.. I never know some ants will have so many hairs as the penultimate photo shows..
This is incredible 🙂
