This footage was taken on a glourious summers day on a local heath, when the Wood ants were at their busiest. It was filmed using a JVC GY-HM 700 HD-PRO Video Camera and with the help of a Nikon 180mm lens attached to a set of close-up lenses I was able to get right into the action ,where you really get a sense of how frantic life is within the ant community. The finished 90 second film was submitted to the 2013 British Wildlife Photography Awards competition and I was delighted when it won 'Highly Commended' in the 'Wildlife in HD' category, along with a second film...'A Passion for Bees'.
