This ant is from the species Strumigenys vazimba. These ants use their large head muscles to snap their mandibles close at high speed.

This picture is composed of 132 images stitched together. The ant is mangnified 500x using a scanning electron microscope. The ant was given to us to image by Brian Fisher, a scientist at the California Academy of Sciences.

This Gigapan is part of the NanoGigaPan project. Which is working to take high resolution images of very small things.
