Story: 
ANTS WITH SCORPION TAIL-Ants always work in groups and share the food they get.In the image a group of ants is seen with a tail of a scorpion which they have just hunted.This macro image is so clear that it shows all the body parts of the ants and the scorpion nicely.The against light situation has given this macro shot a nice depth.The hunted scorpion was also very tiny making it easy for the ants to kill.Such shots are only possible when a keen eye of the photographer keeps looking for the unusual happenings around which are usually go unnoticed. This photograph was selected for the world photo exhibition in Cyprus held in June 2013 under the theme 'COOPERATION'
