Best ways to image?

Hey folks! I'm trying to get a better way to image ants than holding a magnifying glass in front of my iPhone camera. :lol: Sadly I don't have a ton of funds to dump into this so I'm trying to keep it under $40.

My question is, would it be worthwhile to try a cheap digital microscope like ? Or is that a waste of money and I should stick with the phone-and-magnifying glass method (or maybe buy a chip clip-on macro lens)? And if I did either, what's a good magnification level?

You could get a microscope, but a macrolens is portable. Idk about the magnification level.

I am using an Iphone 7 Plus and got this Macro Lens on Amazon and its perfect for real detailed close up shots. Originally it was $19.99 but went up a few bucks.
