Jaak Põder - Gonna get you


Sometimes you take picture of one thing and it turns out to have the feeling of another thing. Here the young small lizard is not looking at this wood ant as its prey, but it’s looking at it with caution. The ant will attack the lizard in a moment to force him/her away from the ants’ home in the same stump they are on.
