I found this beauty in my garden (it is currently summer here in New Zealand) and popped her into a test tube setup, she is about 1cm in length (10mm). I used flash in the photo so please let me know if I need to provide an image without flash. Thx

Thanks, I never would have been able to figure that out on my own, especially since I completely forgot iridomyrmex existed!
