Bonjour Tjutjut
Belle macro pour fêter ce premier anniversaire. Il est agréable de voir cette fourmi qui donne l'impression "d'ouvrir" la fleur. Le bg est idéal, merci du partage.

Hi Tjutjut,

Congratulations with one year TL, you are a fine and dedicated member contributing to a better photo site as Treklens is!

Excellent seen and well capture this very special "ant shot" The bit grainy background contributes to the scene of the ant and flower, a delicate and nice view. Well done my friend!

Beautiful shot, my friend...
Beautiful colors and composition...

Hi Tjutjut,

Selamat ulang tahun!
note yang sangat merendah diri tapi potret-potretnya apik-apik semuanya.
saya suka melihat kehadiran semut-semut itu, menambah elemen dinamika pada potret.
saya membayangkan kalau bunga itu dibasahi sedikit untuk menambah elemen kehidupan/kesegaran hasil efek air. Soal teknik, anda lebih ahli.

just my humble opinion.

Tahniah & Selamat, Tjut!

My dear friend, I apologize for being slow, but I have family and friends’ visiting so getting near the computer has been … challenging to say the least. A heart felt congratulations on your 100th and it is just a beauty. I love the little ant, who looks like he is opening the flower. Great detail and super colour and composition. Excellent.
I look forward to the next 100.

I didn't notice the ants until I opened the thumbnail - WOW - well captured Tjutjut - they are so busy gathering. Nice soft colors on the flower.

Exellent shot and well presented. The composition is just right to show the flower bud well with its ant visitors. I love the gradient background that holds the flower gently in place without competition. Beautiful:)

Congratulations with this anniversary, Tjutjut.
Nice closeup picture you shows here. Your pictures are always a pleasure to look at.
Have a fine day, Best wishes from Jan
