Ant x800

Here is a whole ant magnified 800x using the SEM, it doesn't look much like the ants from a bugs life...
This picture is composed of 136 images (the head of which was imaged before by Jay) taken using the nanogigapn unit. It is magnified 800x using a Scanning Electron Microscope. The Antennas were not part of the original gigapan, and were taken by hand, they are made of 16 pictures and were put together in photoshop and added to the ant which was stitched by the gigapan stitcher.
