Ants Eating Breakfast in the Backyard

The ants were quick to get to the piece of breakfast pastry that I had absentmindedly dropped on the ground in our backyard. As I was watching them clamor over each other to get a taste of the sugary treat, I decided that this was the perfect time to utilize my recently-acquired macro lens. The result was a justification of my favorite way to take photos: making something out of nothing!
