Phase IV by Culpeo-Fox Phase IV by Culpeo-Fox
Enter our empty bodies, sun,
Move our aching muscles
And assemble our divided thoughts.

- dawn chorus of the red ants (Empire Of The Ants, Bernard Werber)


Photo from 2016, shot in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
I don't know the species of ant, unfortunately, but i named this one Anthony.

If I remember correctly, the ants in that film communicated with the humans via mathematics.  Scary thought that...  Fear

Anthony... well, ok :XD:

As for the pose itself, funny that it reminds me to a praying mantis. (which suddenly makes me wonder; do baby mantises eat ants?)

("Nicht schlimm, Vögelchen. Sesh färbt ab. Sesh färbt ab." 8'D)

Jaaa! Ist mir aber nicht selber eingefallen, sondern kam durch Ant-Man auf den Trichter (neulich nachgeholt; der Film macht Spaß); da hieß die Reitameise vom Ant-Man so 8D

(aber abgesehen davon mag ich den Namen Anthony tatsächlich auch so ganz gern, random. Siehe meinem anderen beinahe-Namen Anton/Tony X))

(...:''') Ja...nu.)


Das, was ich so an Ausschnitten von Ant-Man gesehen habe, fand ich auch sehr ansprechend! Will ich mit dir gucken! 8D (Und Phase IV müssen wir auch nochmal zelebrieren.)

Ja. Anthony.
Tony. (...fuck.)
Anton.

Possibly an Asian Fire Ant. It is probably a good thing you didn't attempt to shake hands with her.

Great photography and I love the quote. I may have to add this novel to my read pile; I love the dual perspectives. I read the 1905 H.G. Wells short story by the same title many years ago; the 1977 motion picture made from it doesn't hold up very well.

Thank you! Yeah, Fire Ant was my first suggestion. Though, after some quick research, it may be a Weaver Ant (Oecophylla smaragdina. Although, i'm way better in identifying snakes, so i probably shouldn't talk. :'))

Bernard Werber's Empire Of The Ants in fact is one of may favourite novels altogether. It's been years since i've read it the last time, though (which i should change).

Skia and i once found this movie years ago by chance and randomly took it with us to check it out. So much surreal LSD-imagery in there, we just loved it. :iconantplz:
