Expressive Critters!

It has always been a desire to take photos of the little critters. They are normally unobserved, ubiquitous, and left on their own by human eyes. Sometimes they just get into my clear way of vision and i easily respond when I have a camera.

This ant seems thinking to plunge or to walk. It is a wide space ahead of him, and it might be scared too of the abyss! And who will not!


The hirsute larvae looks talking intimately or discussing of their fate under that leaf. Will they be seen while eating or will they be able to reach adulthood in that condition! They seem to be happy and contented though! What do you think?

Here are the two larvae viewed under the leaf. They seem intimately there waiting for their fate, each caring for the other in the midst of chaos around them. I looked around and there is only the two of them among the leaves. Their being together closely here might really have a critter-reason! I wonder what! Can you see their meaning?

  2. Very clear focus. The ones of the larvae are rather cute, even if destructive too.

    1. haha, it seems like my photos of destructive insects are showing to be cute, as many has also previously described. I have grasshoppers in an early post and they are described as cute too! Thanks

  3. The ant looks like it will bite. The caterpillars - are they born together? They certainly look like they are made for each other, friends forever.

  7. I think our size cuts us off from many animals like this - I think we would all do well to take a closer look. Nice pictures.

  12. Hi Andrea, Great macros of the little critters... Macro photos show us more of the details when it comes to tiny things like those critters than we can ever see with our naked eyes. Great photos!!! Thanks for sharing.

  13. Continuing your Anthropomorphism trend I suggest all those bugs were freaking out when they saw you with your camera. They were scared you were going to squish them between your fingers. NIce shots though.

    1. hahaha, yes Melanie! But if only their 3rd eye is functioning well to read my mind, i am scared to death too that they might suddenly jump on me! Do you know that i very much love to have a butterfly farm, but i confess i cannot at all touch those pupa, as when wiggle i scream!

  22. Fantastic macro shot of these critters! Hopefully, caterpillars will soon be beautiful butterflies..

  23. These shots which you and some others manage to capture of little creatures are just mind blowing. I am still looking for a meaning to my existence Andrea, so no chance of me making a guess at what larvae are up to.
