ants 63

 

It had been raining for 3 days straight.  The ants had invaded the house.

I took a small dish and filled it with about 1/8 inch of water and put it in the freezer.  I then let a several hundred ants climb onto a piece paper.  Once the water was frozen, the paper was held over the ice and the ants that fell to the ice seemed to freeze almost instantly.  I did not expect such immediate results.

63 photos were assembled to get the above photo.
