Dr. Mohamed Babu's Colored Ants

A scientist in Mysore, India found an unusual way to create art: using colored sugar water to dye ants bright colors. As the ants eat, their transparent stomachs give them rear ends that turn the color of their food. Sometimes they change droplet in the middle of feeding, resulting in a mixing of the colors in their bellies. Beautiful!

If only ants could talk. Can you imagine one of them turning to another and saying, “Hey, does this shade of green make my butt look big?”
