Solenopsis spp. queen with minors and brood. Loving their omni nest vertical: large setup.
Just some eye candy for you ant lovers out there!!
Took me a while to get a shot of the queen. She's very camera shy. Note distended abdomen, she's laying hundreds of eggs a day and brood pile is huge.

Enjoy, keep calm, and keep ants.

I can't tell what is the queen... but I am happy you found her and she is squirting out eggs for you.
