See-through ants change colour

Leave it to nature to get it so right. And then Dr. Mohamed Babu to bring these remarkable photos to the world.

Dr Babu discovered that the abdomens in these translucent ants would change colour according to the different liquid sugar that they drank. All of which makes for a fascinating photo series and a noble experiment for the kids next summer vacation.
