Pictures of the day: 11 May 2011

A fire ant appears to be pulling off a one-handed breakdance move on a log. The insect held the pose - known as a hand freeze in breakdancing circles - for 30 seconds. Robertus Agung Sudiatmokos photographed the unusual sight using a macro lens in the village of Cibinong, Indonesia.


Due to their adaptability and highly advanced sense of teamwork, ant populations today outnumber every other insect population on the planet.



Now that's what you call teamwork. An army of ants join forces to bridge the gap between two leaves. The insects were snapped performing the stunt by photographer Yanuar Akbar, 38, from Jakarta, Indonesia.

Foxholes can still be found on Monte Bibele. (Official U.S. Signal Corps photo).
