It's very interesting to see how the ants (or any insects like bees, wasps) build their nests. They build huge nests no where related to their size. I am always amazed to see how they choose certain set of leaves among thousands of leaves, how they bend those leaves, how they stitch those leaves etc. While stitching some of the ants strongly hold the lower leaf from their legs and pull the upper leaves from their mouth. In this image I have tried to emphasis the collective effort made to pull the leaves.
As always waiting for your views.

I like the image as presented, I was imagining another frame Adithya, just the legs of the ants from the upper layer and the legs of the ants from the lower layer, with more emphasis on the cracks in the leaves :-). Interesting observations made, do you have some other angles ? I was thinking of a view with the leaf parallel to the film plane, I know 90% of the times it's not possible out there, thinking so much as I think you had a cracker of a subject to work with. :-)

I don't know how I missed seeing this image for so lang after you posting it. Its a wonderful creation here, I like the team work of these ants - we need to learn a lot from them. Its a new perspective that you have shown us here. I wish to see the color version sometime. Thanks for sharing.
