These enchanting images might look like they come from a f-ant-asy world but they are in fact an extraordinary look at the imaginary ant-ics of the humble ant.
The intriguing insects are pictured carrying out a variety of unusual tasks making the superb scenes look as though they’ve been lifted straight from the pages of a fairytale.
The marvellous macro images are the handiwork of talented photographer, Andrey Pavlov, who spent hours setting the stunning scenes.
But the snapper admitted he didn’t have to travel far to find his subjects thanks to an anthill just metres from his house in Moscow, Russia.
