Seen below is a lovable ant quenching its thirst for sugar water. Brightly colored sugar water prepared by Mohamed Babu for a special photo op he devised. We’re not sure if the resulting gallery is part of Dr. Babu’s current experiments, but the final result is pretty startling. Why is the ant’s belly colored green? It’s translucent, that’s why.
While the exact details of the experiment are unknown to us, Dr. Babu got a few hundred ants to participate. The really cool part is as the ants supped the liquid globules, their colors changed, creating an installation arts spectacle that would delight both kids and grownups with a particular fixation on insects.
We have to give credit to Dr. Babu, who finally found a harmless way to play with ants. In most cases, hapless ants are either burned by magnifying glass lasers, annihilated by bug spray, or treated with scant regard for their well being. At least the ants under Dr. Babu’s lens got a free meal.
