This is a head shot of the ant Eutetramorium mocquerysi which is found in Madagascar and is notable for having wingless queens that are indistinguishable from workers. This image is magnified 400x and is composed of 175 individual pictures.
The ant was given to us to image by Brian Fisher (www.calacademy.org/science/heroes/bfisher /) an entomologist at the California Academy of Sciences.
This Gigapan is part of the NanoGigaPan project. Which is working to take high resolution images of very small things.
