Seriously. It's not. And no, it's not an image of an ant, either. In fact, the creature you see pictured up top isn't even an insect. Can you guess what it is? Here's a hint: count the legs.
Count em? Eight. Eight! Those aren't antennae you see pointing forward, those are the forelegs of a Ugandan jumping spider — a Ugandan jumping spider that really wants you to think it's a Tetraponera twig ant. Explains the ever-excellent photographer/blogger/scientist Alex Wild: "most birds and other vertebrate predators prefer not to eat stinging ants, so the spider may gain some protection from its fakery."
Wild gives us a side-by-side comparison:
That's some mighty fine mimicry, right there.
