Colorful Ants

I needed to share these photos with you. You know my love for entomology.

These ants can't ever be self-conscious about what they eat! Their transparent abdomens reflect what they've ingested.

Realizing this, photographer and scientist Mohamed Babu captured these amazing images after putting colorful sugar drops in his garden and letting the ants go to town, according to The Dailey Mail.

"Some of the ants even wandered from one color to another, creating new combinations in their bodies," Babu said.
