    Great Shot. I love how you kind of feel for the aunt. The baby looks like a Giant conpared to him. You almost see him shaking with fear. Love your work cropping.

Great shot! I love it! What a keepsake for him when he gets older - wonder what profession he will take up - biology? or exterminator?

The ant survived the encounter quite happily. I am always looking at bugs with my boys...they know Dad likes to take bug macros. Evan found this ant, and I quickly took the shot.

Thanks for the comments.

Great catch, Robert. The design, colors and light a excellent. But the pointed finger and the scale of the ant are really outstanding. I think Metter is right we'll see this one in the finals :0)

Congratulations Robert, this is a great portrait. Having kids myself I know how tricky it can be to get them to be still long enough for you to focus on.

The fact that you are receiving responses 2 1/2 years(!) after posting your photo speaks volumes about how people are effected by this wonderful image. Much success.
