Offbeat Video

Incredible macro footage shows a colony of ants devouring a delicious drop of honey.

Budding wildlife photographer Ionut State didn’t have to travel all the way to the plains of Africa or the jungles of South America in order to capture some mesmerising wildlife footage. 

Instead, 34-year-old warehouse co-ordinator headed out to his back garden in order to watch a colony of Ants devour a small drop of honey.

Taking place on April 17th in Rugby, Warwickshire, a frantic frenzy of ants can be seen gobbling up a single drop of honey.

Some of the greedier ants eagerly clambered on top of the delicious sweet treat in order to get a better taste of the goods.

Ionut said: “I am amazed by how nature works and I was really excited to see the ants feed on the honey as it was the first time, I saw anything like that in real life.

“I’m very happy I can share the hidden, microscopic world with people.”
