*. An incredible set of photographs capture the impressive strength of ants as they balance fruit on their heads.


*. They were taken by Eko Adiyanto, who uses macro photography to show the beauty of insects such as ants.


*. What makes these close-up images all the more remarkable is that weaver ants weigh just 5mg.







These eye-catching photos show the immense strength of a weaver ant in Indonesia, balancing and carrying fruit on its teeny-tiny head.

The powerful ant is clearly the insect version of Atlas, one of the strongest and most powerful of all Titans in Greek mythology.


The stunning images were taken by a professional photographer, who captured the super-strong ants with his macro photography equipment, while the insects were at work in his garden in West Java.

Amazing balancing act: This ant carefully balances a hollow fruit on its feelers, giving the impression that it is lifting a great weight in the photographer's garden in West Java, Indonesia.


Photographer said: 'The pictures show us how strong the ants are and how good their team work is.

'These ants are small animals but have enormous strength and are able to work together.

I am very lucky to have the images.'

Nice.

Very beautiful.

Explorers did you follow the scandal that followed the photos he submitted to the Smithsonian? And how he stages these pictures?

The pictures he submitted made it to the Finals, until some professors in Entomology were brought in to shoot down the theory that ants cant do the things he pictures them doing.

That was when he admitted to staging them.

Stage or no stage, the photos are beautiful.
