Ants: Workers of the World

Description

Nature's most successful insects captured in remarkable macrophotography

In Ants,
photographer Eduard Florin Niga brings us incredibly close to the most
numerous animals on Earth, whose ability to organize colonies,
communicate among themselves, and solve complex problems has made them
an object of endless fascination. Among the more than 30 species
photographed by Niga are leafcutters that grow fungus for food, trap-jaw
ants with fearsome mandibles, bullet ants with potent stingers,
warriors, drivers, gliders, harvesters, and the pavement ants that are
always underfoot. Among his most memorable images are
portraits-including queens, workers, soldiers, and rarely seen
males-that bring the reader face-to-face with these creatures whose
societies are eerily like our own. Science writer Eleanor Spicer Rice
frames the book with a lively text that describes the life cycle of ants
and explains how each species is adapted to its way of life. Ants
is a great introduction to some of the Earth's most successful
creatures that showcases the power of photography to reveal the unseen
world all around us.
