Post-apocalyptic ant

The anthill had just begun to wake up after the winter and the first frozen ants walked around. This picture was taken without a flash when the sun was descending below the horizon. The background with the bright sky that can be seen in the blur between the branches gave a fateful impression, so I reduced the color saturation in Lightroom to give the whole picture a post-apocalyptic feeling. I think the mood is strengthened by the low angle that causes the ant to look down on the viewer.
