Amazing and lovely shot. It just doesn't look mechanically feasible. Imagine an engineer turning up with a design like that... Smile

Thanks Smile

By the way, I learned that body part is called "Petiol".

That's not fair. Unlike the trailer hitch, the petiol has to support the entire weight of the load being carrier around. Very Happy I think the ant trumps the trailer hitch.

What a great shot! Splendid idea! How on earth does an ant stay in one piece?

Great shot, very nice!

Regarding the support of the abdomen - size matters! The universe will look quite different for an ant:

Not sure if it is free Sad
