Today’s New York Times is carrying a profile of myrmecologist Anna Dornhaus. It is nice to see Anna’s work receiving such attention, great and important, blah blah blah, but the really important part is this. The editors had the excellent taste to illustrate their piece with some ant and bee photographs of mine.
The online edition also hosts an ant slide show to accompany the story. The Times trimmed the 22 photos I suggested down to an efficient 15, but I’ve preserved the director’s cut here. For reasons unknown they decided against the queen ant shots. And against the amazing gliding Cephalotes.
All the same, I’m happy. This is my photographic debut in the print version of the Times, and they’ve done good work with it.
