This Extreme Closeup Of An Ant Is Giving Us Nightmares

  • Ants aren’t just going to ruin your picnics — they’re coming after your dreams now, too, thanks to a terrifying new close-up photo.
  • The photo was originally submitted to Nikon’s Small World Photomicrography Competition and has since gone viral on social media after placing in the contest.
  • Taken by wildlife photographer Eugenijus Kavaliauskas, the unnerving closeup is a convincing reminder that it’s probably a good thing we don’t see nature at the microscopic level.
  • Just look at the ant’s menacing leer, glowering like some demonic harbinger of doom, emerging from a hellish portal.
