I took this photo last weekend when I joined a photo outing organized by the folks at MY Challenge 2011.
One of my students, Chien Teng, saw a swarm of red weaver ants (oecophylla smaragdina) dragging a dead lizard up a tree to their nest. I of course, being some snap happy photo hobbyist fond of shooting these insects (as evidenced by my multiple posts about them) braved through the countless bites by these ants on my arms and legs to take macro shots of them at work. One of the results is the photo above.
I used a Nikkor 35mm f/1.8 lens with a macro converter attached so that I can move the lens closer to the subject, which also means I was very vulnerable to attacks by the same swarm that killed the lizard.
I particularly like this shot because of one detail: One ant was dragging the lizard by the eye.
I look forward to your feedback regarding the photo above. Hope you like it as much as I do :)
They deliver freshly made sandwiches to offices and homes in Damansara area, and for once a week they also venture into other nearby suburbs.
Nicely wrapped with a note included.
So far I have had two sandwich delivered --- egg and tuna --- both on seeded bread.
The tuna on seeded bread
I personally enjoyed the tuna sandwich. And what I loved most is the seeded bread... it gives a different texture and crunch to the sandwich that I really liked.
If you work in Damansara area or nearby suburbs or even urban KL, and feel like having a nice sandwich lunch personally delivered to you, do check out their schedules for delivery in your area. They have a selection of four different types of sandwiches and the price range is only between RM6 to RM8 including delivery. Just go to their Facebook page for more info, or add them on Twitter at @SmplySandwiches.
I leave it up to the viewer to digest and interpret what can be observed in the video, and I choose not to force my own opinions on others.
But I have to make one confession though. The 9th minute onwards of this video made me cry for almost one hour. The final three and a half minutes of the video got in really deep into my empathic self.
So please, if you watch this video, please watch it in its entirety, then draw your own conclusions.
P/S: I think it was announced that the authorities wants to release a video compiling all the good work of the police and the authorities during the rally. If anyone knows where I can find the video, please do tell me, I would say that that video is worth sharing as well.
