As the AntLab plows through our collections, hoping to construct photographic catalogues, we have to experiment with lighting. Lots of experiments. Turns out, JelenaB has discovered the curse of ant photography, little yellowish ants, can at least partially be tamed by the use of grey points (the little triangles upon which the ant is glued, which is then run through with a pin, suspending the little gal for eternity with legs dangling downward) against a dark grey background. I particularly like this image of Pheidole tysoni suspended. She would look good wandering in the fruit bowl of Carravagio’s Supper at Emmaus.
