The shocking shot reveals everything from skin bumps, to the hairs on its chin.
It’s zoomed in so close that we don’t actually see the critter’s eyes.
Those red dots are part of the ant’s antennae, which give it a much more menacing appearance.
The image was taken by Dr. Eugenijus Kavaliauskas and submitted to Nikon’s 2022 Small World photography competition.
His own website features even more jaw-dropping snaps of creepy crawlies.
It didn’t win but was praised among the Images of Distinction.
That hasn’t stopped the photo from grabbing the attention of people online.
“Image from a horror movie? Nope,” one commented.
