Ants in 360 Degrees
The process is fairly straight forward. It consists of taking a series of focal length shots at different angles and then editing them in focus stacking software. From there we must combine the images into the series of angles to create the image above.
In this image you are able to rotate the ant to see all sides of his body along with the ability to zoom in to see the images in more detail.
The specimen shown above is of an unknown Myrmecia male drone and contains over 400 images.
We'll be adding more species in the future and you'll be able to find them here.
This quarter we're happy to bring you a brief look at an Oecophylla smaragdina formicarium from Viktor Underwood.
