Weaver Ant - Colombo, Sri Lanka

I came across this weaver ant (Oecophylla smaragdina) in the garden and photographed it with a macro lens. The hardest part of the whole process was to lock focus on the ant as it moved around a fair bit. Fortunately my macro lens supports auto-focus. If not, pre-focusing and waiting would have made this shot so much harder. For lighting I used a hand held Canon 430EX speed light.
