Graham, here you´ve portrayed a species of the genus Myrmica. (On the understanding that you have collected this specimen around your place.) The portrait shows a lot of interesting detail.

Must be a rare Zeiss objective you are using. I´ve never come across a zoom objective for the common compound microscope. It´d be interesting to have some more information on this one. What N. A. does it have?

Cheerio,
Betty

@gpmatthews: Very good work and a really beautiful picture. My respect counts, above all, for the 120 single photos. The aliens are among us.

Boy that looks like a nightmare image to stack! An ambitious endeavor, but it worked, and it certainly looks "other-worldly".

Some incredible detail on the head Graham. I have never seen an ant with ridges.
