This set of striking images show the difficulties faced by a group tiny ants who are making a journey across a small stretch of water.
The river reflects their bright orange bodies in a stunning mirror image as they make their way from one stone to another.
In one photo the first pioneering ant stretches out almost his entire body length to reach the other side. Another shot shows one rescuing his friend from a watery grave.

A third shot shows an ant as he appears to be peacefully taking a drink from the river.

Thirsty work: One of the ants stops to take a drink

Don't worry, I got you: An ant helps his friend across

Stretch! An ant reaches out for the other side

All together now: The three ants after making it to the other side

That makes me think of my favorite aunt.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

It reminds me of a story about chopsticks: the power of solidarity.
