Seeing an ant drink water from up close is pretty fascinating

I don't know why I'm so mesmerized. Maybe because the ant looks positively alien from up close. Or maybe because I wish I could suck out and deflate the water I drink like a balloon letting out air instead of having to pour it in me like fuel. Whatever it is, it sure makes for a nice GIF.


The scene comes from a documentary Ants: Nature's Secret Power.

I snapped a picture of a wasp drinking droplets of water off a flower a few years back. Just great timing and luck...

Nature is awesome.
