Macro photos of red fire ants

Fire ants, are stinging ants with over 280 species worldwide. They have several common names including Ginger Ants and Tropical Fire Ants (English), aka-kami-ari (Japanese), and Feuerameise (German).

For these red fire ants, it is not easy to take the picture because the ants won't keep still. And a zero macro is not possible as the ants would climb to the camera's lens.
