Gay Ants Celebrate Pride, or Something (Stunning, Real Photos)
Mohamed Babu has gone and made unwitting LGBT evangelists (or maybe Google spokespeople? Simon addicts? Mike and Ike hawkers?) out of hundreds of tiny ants with an experiment exploring the transparent abdomens of the unsuspecting critters.
By placing them on a paraffin base the drops kept their shape when touched by the ants.
He said: ‘The idea for the photograph came to me after my wife showed me some ants that turned white sipping the spilled milk drops on our kitchen counter.
‘I shot the photo in my garden to take advantage of the natural lighting and set a paraffin sheet with coloured sugar drops near some ants.
The ants, in case you are wondering, preferred light green and yellow sugar drops over red and blue.
