Russian photographer Andrey Pavlov takes insane macro pictures of LIVE ants by spending hours and hours playing with them and posing them to get the perfect shot. I...can't even believe half of them are real. Of course I have zero experience posing ants and have only burnt them with a magnifying glass, so maybe it's actually easier than I thought.
Hit the jump for a smattering of the VERY worthwhile shots, and a link to the entire collection with a ton more.
Thanks to bb, who's never ruined a picnic.
