Bodybuilders

Ants build a bridge with their bodies to reach food on a higher branch in Mataram, Indonesia. “I often observe and take pictures of ants when the sun rises in order to [capture] their activity in a beautiful light,” writes Your Shot member Adhi Prayoga. “I was lucky to get a moment of cooperation.” Prayoga’s picture recently appeared in Your Shot's Daily Dozen.
