    Default The hustle bustle of pagoda

    ID: Pagoda ants/acrobat ants

    Spotted this interesting sight on the beautiful pagoda built by the tiny beauties, along the trail. For some reason, unsure if its due to the heavy rains or presence of some predator in the surrounding area, there seemed to be a lot of hustle bustle amongst the tiny warriors and a few of them extended off to the tip of the stem of the plant, in defensive stance, on which the pagoda/structure was built.
    In a quest to capture the hurried motion of the ants, i attempted framing it at a slower shutterspeed, though without the tripod getting a crisp frame was a difficult task, especially while protecting self and the equipment from the monsoon showers. Eventually could attempt a decent frame where one can see a hint of the fast paced motion of the ants

    EXIF:
    Canon 80D
    Canon 100mm macro
    F/14
    Shutterspeed 1/10
    ISO 320
    Handheld, External flash fired

    I think maybe they are hurrying around due to the falling water droplets? The show shutter helps to show their pace. Wish you had a support to rest your camera. Nicely captured in the given circumstances. Thanks for sharing.

    Interesting. There is so much about behaviour of various species that we don't understand. Thanks for sharing.
