Lithuanian photographer captures an ant really up close. Which seems to be very terrifying. This is the first time that someone captured such a wondering shot of an ant.
The eye-popping photo is one of 57 Images of Distinction in Nikon’s Small World Photomicrography Competition.
The terrifying portrait was captured by Eugenijus Kavaliauskas, a Lithuanian photographer.
Images of farting zebra and petulant penguin shortlisted for Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards 2022
This is the 48th year of the competition, which seeks to “recognize excellence in photography through the microscope,” according to a news release shared with CNN.
The 2022 contest received almost 1,300 entries from 72 countries, according to Nikon.
The said picture–which won Kavaliauskas one Nikon item with a retail value of $35–showed the ant’s face, magnified five times under a microscope.
According to the Insider report, Kavaliauskas
lives next to a forest, which made it easier for him to “capture and photograph the ant”, whose picture was then selected in the 2022 Nikon Small World Photomicrography Competition. The picture in consideration may seem frightening to the common eye, however, the photographer revealed in a statement that he didn’t agree with the sentiment. He said: “There are no horrors in nature.”
