A New Perspective of the Day: This is What an Ant Colony Looks Like

Look at this aluminum cast of an underground ant colony created by American entomologist and retired biology professor Walter R. Tschinkel. Interestingly enough, for how complex this looks on the surface, the casting process is actually pretty straightforward (if not cruel); all you have to do is pour molten aluminum down into the hole and let time and nature work their magic.
