I had a feeling when I took this photograph of ants having a party on this flower that it would be a good candidate for a monochrome image. The light was glancing off the ants and the the flower. The only processing I did was turning the image from color to black and white.
I’m still not very good at identifying the flowers and I had a bit of trouble with this one. This one should have been easy Oak Ridge Forest Preserve (Cherry Valley, IL) is full of them. I will have to find a better website or book for future reference.
