So this is the first queen, she was crawling on my grandmothers fishpond patio. I caught her on May 9th this year.

This is the second queen. She was in my sisters house, I caught her on May 10th this year. I believe in the last photo of her she has laid an egg(sorry for the bad quality, I didn't want to disturb her anymore by picking her up in case it is an egg and she decides to eat it).

Can't see the photos. Seems photobucket isn't friendly toward 3rd party hosting.
