Ant Night

We presented the Nano Gigapan ant images at the California Academy of Sciences Nightlife. Nightlife is a evening social event at CAS that happens every Thursday evening. It gives people a chance to explore the museum at night and ask questions. Nano Gigapan set up a table and had the opportunity to present some of our images and talk to people about our work.

Aphaenogaster occidentalis

This Nano Gigapan is of an ant commonly found in Northern California. We found this one in the kitchen. It is the same species as the one below that's holding a fly.

This Nano Gigapan is a head shot of the ant that is composed of 80 pictures. The ant is magnified 500x.

You can see optical images of it on ant web.
