I love the ant in the center. It looks like he has gray whiskers!

I usually don't enjoy finding ants around, but this macro is superb.

Your shot of the ants is fabulous. Did you use a tripod, at all?

Really, really good!

Ha, I took a picture of the same thing yesterday but went with something else today. :)
Those ants are very busy on peony buds.

Great shot and very topical for me right now as we're fighting back an invasion of the little devils in our house. :)

Super macro, EG. I wonder if my Peonys are blooming yet. I tried to look but it is 11PM--I'll wait 'til morning.
You must have an excellent camera---well it is you too and I remember what camera you have. I think I am just rambling and should go to bed. 'Night. MB

Thank goodness! I've seen peonies not bloom because of lack of ants. I like the little hairs on the ant's bottoms, too. lol
