2.85 - "Solid" 

I shot this on a Nikon D5200 with the 105mm f/2.8 macro lens. I still feel like this picture was more luck than skill. I was experimenting with a remote speedlight that I had just bought. I was triggering it with my on-camera flash. I kept snapping and snapping at the parade of ants marching by on the orange tree. Somehow, the flashes, the focus, and the shutter all synced, and I got this picture.

I really like this one. A great example of teamwork. Go team!

It's a little close to being bullseye, and that blowout on left is distracting. If you cropped some of that out, it might help.
