Gailen Mapes62,544Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera  W-Z - 13 of 30Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members.           These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).       Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to April 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting March 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag.I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes2014-04-13 10:42:2291405CC G+

I suppose this is not technically my best photo. But it's a rare view of the inside of an Eciton burchellii army ant bivouac in Ecuador. The technique involved briefly inserting the camera into the mass of ants, firing off a few quick shots, and running away pulling biting, stinging ants off me. Would not recommend.

I suppose the silver lining of a colony that starved during an unusually cold winter is that the bees weren't the only casualty.

If I had to pick a favorite army ant, it'd probably be the tank-like Nomamyrmex , a small genus of brutish ants found from south Texas to northern Argentina. These heavily armored ants are specialist predators of other large, well-defended ants. Here, a worker N. esenbeckii carries a vanquished major worker of a Pheidole.

Although they may not look it, these Colobopsis impressus ants from Florida are sisters. The larger ant at left has a blocky, cork-like head used to plug the nest entrance and prevent unwanted intruders, while the smaller individual is a regular worker. Whether young ant larvae develop into one or the other form is not genetic but depends on the environmental signals they receive as they grow.

Most people think of cockroaches as pests, but only 4 of the 4,000 species (that's 0.1%) are truly pesty in their persistent association with human dwellings. The vast majority require natural habitats and would not survive indoors, or even in towns. Some, like this Australian woodland species, are quite pretty.

Portrait of an Australian acrobat ant. This genus, Crematogaster, is one of a small number of ant genera I recommend all entomologists learn to identify. Acrobat ants are abundant in most places around the world, so there is some utility in being able to pick them out, and their distinctive heart-shaped abdomens are an easy trait to identify.

For those of you in Australia, I'll be leading a one-day insect photography workshop in Cairns this July:

http://www.eventbee.com/event?eid=127915841

We'll be covering mostly lighting and composition, as well as tricks for working with live insects. We are already 2/3 full, so if you'd like to attend, I recommend signing up sooner rather than later.

(Oh, and, this lovely creature is an Opisthopsis strobe ant, one of many charismatic insects we are likely to encounter.)

Via +Carolyn E. Wright, I see that Getty Images has won the first of its spate of recent lawsuits against copyright infringers. It has won big, too. Over $300k worth of big. I expect the defendants, being a small web design company, will declare bankruptcy and disappear rather than pay. I also suspect Getty will be ok with that, as this win is a helpful precedent for them regardless of whether they collect.

Should this ruling worry owners of small websites that might inadvertently be using copyrighted materials?

I don't think so. These defendants were in the business of selling website designs. As those designs included unlicensed Getty images, they were actually selling Getty's products outright rather than merely displaying them. They continued to do so even when informed of the issue.

That, and the defendants apparently registered websites under false names to... more »

One of my favorite studies demonstrating the importance of ants is this 1982 paper by Gary & Joan Fellers:

http://www.jstor.org/discover/10.2307/2425390?uid=3739256&uid=2&uid=4&sid=21103547572461

The researchers dropped dead insects on a Maryland forest floor to watch what happened. Turns out, ants happen, and ants happen quickly. Everything they scattered was taken by ants, with a median time of less than 4 minutes. Nothing in the study lasted longer than 36 minutes.

This is the fate of most small creatures that die, then. Their bodies are carted off and eaten by ants. This finding nicely explains both why we aren't buried in the carcasses of dead bugs, and why there are so many ants.

The California harvester ant Pogonomyrmex californicus is the species shipped out with children's ant farms all over the country. It is a big and colorful ant, which should make it ideal for these sorts of educational toys. Except, this species also has one of the most painful stings of any North American insect. Go figure. I'm surprised Uncle Milton hasn't been sued out of existence yet.

The official winter honey bee loss numbers are still months away, but they are likely to be high. Be skeptical of claims that high losses this year are anything other than weather, though. It was a long, cold, rough winter.

A peek inside a laboratory fungus garden of the agricultural ant Mycocepurus smithii. If you click on the large version, you should be able to see the stringy white fungal hyphae growing over the bits of corn meal and oats that the ants (and their University of Texas keepers) have fed to the garden.

Finally, a warm day in central Illinois! I was able to poke my head outside just long enough to see the first ants of spring: Tapinoma sessile, the odorous house ant, running in a little trail along the sun-warmed south face of a redbud tree.

I didn't have enough time to take a decent photo- too many babies around here need cuddling, apparently- but here's a shot of an early spring Tapinoma from last year.

Insect aficionados, and veterans of the creation/evolution culture wars, are likely aware of the bombardier beetles that expel an explosive defensive secretion when attacked. What many people don't know, though, is that the remarkable behavior has evolved more than once. In addition to the famous and well-studied bombardiers, there is a second, more obscure lineage of ground beetles, the Paussinae, that have independently developed a similar behavior.

This photograph shows Metrius contractus, a North American paussine, along with the telltale chemical stain left by the chemical "bomb".

A old portrait of Nothomyrmecia macrops , South Australia's fabled "Dinosaur Ant".

I took this photograph in 2005 after staying up all night in near-freezing weather waiting for the cold-active foragers to emerge. More than any other photo, this one launched my photography business. In addition to being a pretty image of a pretty insect, this shot was sold for magazine covers, websites, books, and many other uses. Far more than any of my previous work. It doesn't get as much attention these days, and as it pre-dates social media I don't think I've ever shared it here. So, here it is. Nothomyrmecia.
