Noticed a coloney of ants in a rose plant and thought they would be nice subjects for some macro shots, getting a decent shot of these critters was tougher than i thought, they hide under the leaves the moment i got my camera lense close to them and they are restless, dont stop for a single moment, spent about 40 min for an ant to come and stop at the right place to get a nice picture and all the circus was worth when i got this shot which i like a lot. Do you like it too?

They will adapt to wide range of water conditions and will thrive in the same conditions as common aquarium fish, these cute little critters should be kept in colonies, they enjoy sitting on plant leaves and munch on film of algae and micro organism formed on plant leaves, Females are more colorful compared to male of the same species.
