Ants have been evolving for 150 million years. Their appearance varied greatly over time. The great diversity of these insects can be seen especially in the large magnification photos. In these close-ups, we can see a huge variety of shapes and colors of these amazing creatures. You can see this tiny world seen up close. See for yourself how different the heads of ants are by viewing them in large magnification photos.
