This shot wasn’t too difficult. The ant was following my finger about menacingly, as seen here, so I only needed to lift my hand just above the viewing frame to get her to pose.

Awww geez, adorable! I mean, er, aaaugh, I’m terrified, save me from this ferocious formicid.
Have you ever photographed live pseudoscorpions? I feel the body size/menace ratio is about the same as shown here.
No matter the difficulty, it is a wonderful POV and the result is stunning!

What the name of this sp? the body looks like Tetraponera rufonigra.
This is Harpegnathos saltator, an Indian species in the ponerinae.
