An ant wanders a landscape of petal-less flowers, the latticework of stems echoing the framework of organic molecules.

    Another eye-popping view from the unique eye of the Rick Meister!

    Absolute poetry. It reminds me of an Anne Carson poem where she compares winter trees to “white nerve nets.” The world echoes itself.

    Thanks, Denice.   And “white nerve nets” is a good idea for a future post, Strangefeather.

    Lovely shot. That is Prenolepis imparis, the Winter Ant.

    Interesting, looks like a molecular or chemical structure (takes me back to WSU).

    I’ve observed ants making transitions from one surface to the next and I notice sometimes they miss and falter, dangling, trying to get a foothold. This fella looks like he might have overestimated his reach!

    Still with the light, very cool shot.

    Great athletes, Diane.

    Beautiful, I love the tones and the moment you captured!
