Another image that I made the other day while photographing the Christmas cactus blossoms on my front porch. This is high-magnification macro image and it is the full frame as captured by the camera – no cropping. For a scale reference in this photograph the ant was about half the length of a grain of rice. Look at the ants on the flowers in yesterday’s post to see their size in comparison to an entire blossom.

Christmas Cactus

They have all come into bloom on my front porch this past week so I went out there and snapped a few shots in the late afternoon sunlight the other day.
