Feeling chipper, the wood ant caught bringing science to life @ Mail Online via Book of Joe.

Quite what this industrious little wood ant is planning to do with this microchip is not known, but how appropriate it is that he appears to have a scientific interest.

Because the insect features in a stunning new book featuring the art of the coloured scanning electron micrograph – in the case of this chap magnified 22 times.
Microcosmos takes readers into a secret world of extreme close-ups. Some subjects have been magnified by as much as 22million times.

Detailed descriptions of the subjets are contained within. The wood ant, for example, is a social creature, and acts as a slave for the blood-red ant Formica sanguinea.

  1. I’m not sure the ant is planning to do anything now that she has been coated with platinum and exposed to a high vacuum. 🙂

  2. How the heck did he gets his hands on one of these before I did?!? http://www.nxp.com/news/content/file_1701.html

    Nifty new biological pick and place machine, perhaps?
