A 365 Day Project

Day 332/365: Marching Ant

I noticed these ants heading up a tree this afternoon and thought they could be OK to shoot, but instead of freezing them in action I wanted to capture their movement. So I have panned with the ant. I am pretty happy with this result, out of all my shots(heaps of them!), with the body fairly focussed but the extremities still showing movement. I think the different coloured bark adds interest too.

  1. This is a really interesting shot. The movement capture works well, and I like how the head and abdomen have been frozen against the rest.

    Only 25 more days to go!

    • Thanks a lot, I haven’t done much panning, so I was pleased with this one đŸ™‚
