Big Ant by ironmanbr Big Ant by ironmanbr
In a lucky night this big ant appear in my room and stayed very quiet for many minutes (maybe for the cold weather)! To shot macro I need light, and I tried to use the popup flash using an white paper to reflect the light, so a friend of mine helped me in this task :D

Yeah it is scary!!

Photo processed from raw: exposure, light, contrast and sharp adjustments. Then a litle crop in PS.

You can see the uncropped version here: [link]
