Translucent Ants Eating Colored Liquids

They say you are what you eat, and it’s especially true with the translucent ants. Scientist Mohamed Babu from Mysore, India, placed specially colored sugar drops in his garden to attract the weird insects his wife found near the house sipping the spilled milk.

“The idea for the photograph came to me after my wife showed me some ants that turned white sipping the spilled milk drops on our kitchen counter,” says Mohamed.

Some of the ants would even move from one color to another resulting in new color combinations in their stomachs.
