sweet honeydew

By philgood
An ant looking after and caresssing the aphids, it's reward the aphids expel a sweet fluid, honeydew, interesting to whatch them caress the aphids with their antennea, they seem to know when the honeydew is coming out and it's all over in a flash, so very hard to get the timing right.

Just excellent, lack a little DOF, I'd have shot it at F16 and tidied it up afterwards, but that's being really picky with it!

Thanks Ade, I find F11 is the sharpest apeture at 3X on the MPE, F16 is to soft, I had to use a fast shutter due to the ants moving so fast, and taking the dew is over in a split second, What do you mean tidied up aftwards?
