Terrifying photo shows what an ant looks like close up

A super-magnified image of an ant, giving an impression of monstrous proportions, has spooked social media users. The photo was one of the many striking images from Nikon’s 2022 Photomicrography Competition. The contest recognises the best photos taken through microscopes.

The ant, a miniscule creature, can induce terror when magnified under a microscope five times, as Dr Eugenijus Kavaliauskas’ photo has shown. The insect appeared in the photo with violet-coloured eyes and golden fangs, seemingly bearing a sinister expression. – Agencies
