Five-Year Timelapse of Ants in a Scanner


We’ve shared a good number of time-lapse videos here on PetaPixel before, but this one is pretty unique in the way it was created: François Vautier put an ant colony inside his scanner, and scanned the colony once a week over the course of five years. He then compiled the resulting images into a time-lapse video. It’s a little hard to make out what’s going on, and the zooming and panning can be a little distracting, but the idea is pretty interesting nonetheless.
