Myrmecophobia

"Chief, paparazzi alert! This one is not myrmecophobic..." (Myrmecophobia = fear of ants)
These guys were working extra hard to get ready for autumn, smart of them to hang around a picnic ground. They don't seem to be anthropophobic. (Anthropophobia
= fear of people) Here's a shot from the ants' point of view.
Do you have any phobia? Phobophobia, maybe??!! LOL (Phobophobia = fear of phobias)

Hi Lisi,

Nice image - big looking ants!

My phobia is a common one for some communities - fear of missing a day on daily photo blog...

:)

Cheers,

The Blue One

I was in HK a few years ago, and I LOVED it. Your site really takes me back and shows me things from a new perspective and also things I didn't have enough time to see.

You take wonderful pictures as well. Your use of color is really nice (as well as your use of ants! How did you get so close?).

By the way, I have a fear of needles, as in getting shots at the doctors office. :*( Yuck.

We have too much to learn of ants, they have order and respect Nature.

Great close-up! I see that they are making their way from the tree to the fence. I don't like rats.

Very cool photo. I can see the trend now. Ants around the world ... I especially like the ants point of view photo.

wow what a nice shot from the view of ants - these guys look pretty big - my phobia is workphobia =)

tanty, phobia of waterfall...I would have to look it up in the online phobia list to find out what it is called ;-).

Bluey, I don't really have that phobia but I did get quite anxious once when Blogger was acting up

Shrig, thank you for the compliment...I used macro and zoomed in...I can't get too close, can I?

W, good eye, are you a relative? hehe

Kala my dear friend, LOL, I have the same phobia or maybe it's just very common.

Thanks everyone...as for my phobia, have you noticed I haven't posted anything underground yet? my other fear is flying cockcroach...they don't navigate very well and very often like to just bump into people...yuck!

unfortunately i do have a phobia and it's even hard to say it, phobia of death.

 

Blogger Curly said ... (October 15, 2006 7:53 AM) : 

I can envisage the film now "March of the Ants"

By the way, what camera do you use Lisi, some kind of digital SLR, your last two posts have perfect depth of field?

 

Blogger Invader Stu said ... (October 15, 2006 8:30 AM) : 

cool photo but sometime ants give me the shivers too. I don't know why really

 

Blogger jasmine said ... (October 15, 2006 11:34 AM) :

so lisi, you have fear of "xiao chiang"? hehe... why do HK serials call them xiao qiang?

 

Blogger dutchie said ... (October 19, 2006 6:08 PM) : 

That is SUCH a cool photo!

I know, I know I'm late, but when I saw your link from today's photo I just had to see this one. Everyone else has said the obvious, but it truly is a beautiful photo. Congratulations!

There's a new film coming out called Termites or something like that by the same producers of the film about the penguines (I think). I'll think of you if I go see it lisi.

Spectacular photo! The ants have almost a translucent quality to them, making them look delicate and even kind of pretty. Really nice work. They look so different from the ants over here, which are black and thick looking.
