Rainbow over anthill in San Cristobal, NM. When I get down low enough I can see how even the smallest creatures get a view of a rainbow with the rest of us.
Ant hill in the field in San Cristobal this evening. I love to watch them grow in their individual perfection. I included the elements of the landscape for scale and location. I spotted this particular ant hill this evening and put the camera on the ground to include some sky for balance. Thanks for looking. G
Over the Anthill. The Milky Way glows bright in the October sky, and if I get far enough away from the light pollution (yes we have some here in northern New Mexico), even the landscape seems to reflect the light from the stars. The grains of the anthill excavation and the stars of our galaxy rotating in unison. And as my friend Colin says in the comments “I like the juxtaposition of the smallest of creatures against the vastness of space”. Me too! Thanks for looking. G
