Amazing Ant Photography
by Andrey Pavlov

Mr. Pavlov sets up the props, the ants gladly raise them. According to Mr Pavlov, "I used to work in theatre which was a big help when it came to making props, and I chose ants because I respect them and their way of life."

Mr. Pavlov says that having children changed the way he perceived life. "Ants care about their children and look after the elderly." says Mr. Pavlov.

Andrey Pavlov spends hours creating scenes for the ants to inhabit.

Mr. Pavlov said the trick is knowing how ants work, generally in a line and following each other. A little redirection and they'll go where you want.

"Ants care about their children and look after the elderly" says Andrey. After viewing this photo, I will now always look at ants in a new light.

SOOOO creative & cute! When I camp out I take some candy for the ants (they like tootsy rolls) & watch them gather around it , designate jobs, break it up & take it home...So much more civilized than us! Just IMAGINE a big bunch of food being dropped from the sky in an urban area! People would kill each other to get it!
