Interesting Photo of the Day: An Ant Investigates a Marble

Even the miniscule can be boldly beautiful. Thanks to the macro lens, we can capture the extreme beauty in the tiniest subjects—things that might otherwise be overlooked. This ant seems to be tip-toeing off a water droplet on the surface of a pond:

But not everything is as it seems. A reflective marble sits motionless on the top of a wet garden table, mimicking the look of a falling droplet. Photographer Nunu Rizani captured this moment right in his own backyard in Bandung, West Java, Indonesia.

Rizani used a Canon EOS 7D to take this photograph with these settings: 100mm, f/7.1, 1/100 second, and ISO 800.
