It’s easy to see which ants have been sipping which coloured sugar water  drops thanks to their transparent abdomens. Father of three Mohamed  Babu set up these photographs after his wife, Shameem, showed him some  ants that had turned white after sipping on some spilt milk. Dr Babu  mixed sugar water with edible colours red, green, blue and yellow and  placed them in his garden to attract the insects. He discovered the ants  preferred lighter colours such as yellow and green.
