This a photo and article is circulating on Facebook:

Mohamed Babu from India, captured these amazing pictures last year after his wife noticed that ants turned white when they drank milk. He dissolved sugar in food colouring solutions of red, green, blue and yellow and then placed them in his garden to attract ants.

Some of them even moved between the different solutions, resulting in psychedelic colour combinations.
