100th Macro Monday

IMG_9995


Happy 100th Macro Monday! Thank you to each one of you helping to make it such a success! Wouldn't it be wonderful if we had 100 participants this week?

I have to confess, I did not count all these tiny ants - That thing they are eating on is an average black ant to give you some idea of how small these guys are. Amazingly tiny.

I'm pretty sure there's at least 100 there.  PS, I did count the ant eggs in the badge below, but I lost count so I'm not sure if there's 98 or 103, lol.

My husband was kind enough to bring me a package of mini-m&ms (actually it was for the grandkids, but don't tell them I played with them first, k?) and I counted out 100, exactly. But you can't really tell here, so. . .

Macro Monday is easy to play, snap a macro (or any close-up) photo, post it on your blog and come back here and sign MckLinky. :) MM started on Sept 29, 2008 - Thanx to all of you for helping make it such a fun start to the week!

I invite you all to make up a Macro Monday badge (if you want to) just email me if you'd like me to share it here too.  I'll make up a page where they all can live and be linked back to their creators. :0)

  10. "The ants go marching one by one, HOORAY, HURRAH"......congrats on 100 Macro Mondays!
    I had totally forgotten the 100 objects until I came to link, looked at what I had and it actually works. Hope you enjoy!
    Thanks for being a terrific hostess!

    Looking at what 100 M&M's look like (doesn't look like a lot) makes me wonder if any of us are really cautious of how many we eat in a sitting. :)

  11. Hope you get a hundred participants, Lisa. Congrats on 100 Macro Mondays, WOOT!

    I'll take some M&M's and pass on the ants, thank you.

  26. It's true that aunts are very busy and carry on very heavy things like a bread crump, but still they are ugly and I prefer by far the colorful M&M's, lol !

  36. Well, darn it, I forgot about the '100 things' option. Sorry... I hope you enjoy my entry anyway.

    Those little ants are incredibly small! Just amazing. I've never seen any as tiny as that! Great shots! :)

    Great macros! Aspecial the M & M’s ;)

  39. Those ants are incredible! Well done on your restraint with the M&Ms - my grandchildren would never have seen them. I can resist so long as the packet isn't open . . .

    ReplyDelete
  40. Happy 100th!! (If we blog long enough, maybe someday I can say that in reference to a birthday too, but that's a LOT of blogging until then!) You should do a button with the M&M's as they have the same initials as Macro Monday.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Happy 100th! Awesome ants, and the M&Ms are beautiful. I'm basically new to Macro Monday, but I truly enjoy it and am wishing you 100s and 100s more posts . . .

    And I love the M&Ms photo ... the ants? Not so much!!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Those ants would have made short work of your M&Ms! Love the colors.

    Dummy me, at first I thought the ants were earrings. I guess I have strange taste in jewelry!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Whhot!

  62. Wow, love the ant photographs. Do you know anything about them?

    And just BTW, your ant 'eggs' in the badge are actually pupae in cocoons. Eggs are much smaller and shiny.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I was horrified though compelled to look at the ant pic, but I quickly skipped to the M&M's. Then I started juxtaposing the two and seeing the ants all over the M&M's. Eeeeeew!

    ReplyDelete
  64. wow so many link ups this week, those ants were a great find...love your heart, i don't think it would be possible for me to make a heart that big....everyone would take a piece of it!
