Ants, Another Macro Test

Another test shot with my new macro extension tubes. I took the highchair outside and hosed it down, which left a lot of scraps of food on our back patio. It wasn’t long before the ants swarmed and consumed all of the cheerios, bananas, and granola that was left. I grabbed my camera and took some handheld shots. Still nothing too spectacular, but I’m getting a feel for it. I have a feeling these would have been very sharp if I had used a tripod. It’s hard to set up a tripod when the camera lens has to be ½” away from your subject. This preview image is very small because the picture kind of creeps my wife out, and she’s probably not the only one. If you’d like to see the large version, just click the preview image below.
