Paint Your Ants

The old saying "you are what you eat" holds true for these insects since spectacular images reveal their abdomens switching color while they drink on sugar drops. A few of the ants also wandered from one color to another one, making different combinations inside their bodies. Mohamed Babu create the pictures just after his better half, Shameem, showed him a few ants had turned white right after consuming spill milk. Scientist Dr. Babu, combined the sugar drops together with edible colors red, green, blue and yellow and put these in his backyard in order to attract the insects. Dr Babu noticed the ants favored lighter tones for example yellow and green.
