"The worst enemies of ants are often other ants," writes entomologist-cum-photographer Alex Wild. And what brutally savage enemies they are.
Ants are among the most remarkable – and remarkably diverse – social organisms on earth. This makes them endlessly interesting photographic subjects, especially through the lens of someone like Wild. His ant photography never fails to capture our attention (even when it's not actually of ants), and this gallery – which features dozens of images of warring ants and ant societies – is no exception. We've included a few of our favorites below, but you'll want to head over to his website to check out the whole collection.
