Skywatch Friday - An Ant View Of The Sky



Haven't been out much, this week, to look for photo opportunities for SWF ... plus there hasn't been much going on in our skies this week.

There are two wildfire's burning on the other side of the city. Hopefully they will have them under control soon and the personal fighting the fires remain safe. Also, that no homes are lost.

The smoke in the air does lead to some spectacular sunrises and sunsets, though.

Anyway ... I was looking at my small garden, early this morning and I noticed there were quite a few ants scurrying around...

So me , being me ... got to wondering what an ant's view of the sky would be like ...

I think my neighbours are quite used to my strange antics, when it comes to photography, by now. So I guess none of them got the urge to call the men in white coats, this morning, at the sight of me, in my pyjamas, half upside down in my vege garden...

What an ant, in my corn patch, sees when looking up...


Sometimes it gets to see more than it bargained for ...as I did, when I downloaded this shot :-) Can you see the face? :-)

Have a great weekend :-)

Go to SKYWATCH for views of the sky from all over the world !

:)) You gave me quite a laugh, when reading about you almost upside down in your garden! I guess my neighbours have the same thoughts about me!

Love the perspective in your shots, I really felt like an ant when enlarging!
Wish you a great weekend!

I hope the fires won't claim any homes.

Lovely ant's perspective shots. How fun!

Sometimes, we have to do whatever it takes to get our Sky Watch photos. You did very well.

Pacey said...

Lol, that's a lovely shot and I too imagined what could it be and thanks for showing what it was. You're the best ant now.

Love this perspective. Fun shot. I do the some kind of thing, and I know my neighbors think I'm strange. The face made me laugh.

Sorry about the fires. They come in earlier and earlier each year.

Anyway, this is a lovely way to skywatch. I feel like an ant :)

Wren said...

Very Cool! What a good idea for skywatch.

Gaelyn said...

These are excellent captures. What a fun idea to see the world as an ant. The face is a nice addition, even if accidental.

Pearl Maple said...

Fun view of the sky, always interesting to see what people manage to find as props to frame the sky.

Love hearing about you and the neighbors. You captured collage-like photos there! A bit of this and some of that, lots of texture and blue sky.
