Camponotus pennsylvanicus and friends

I went on a little anting foray to check up on a local Aphaenogaster tennesseensis colony (which I am eagerly awaiting their nuptial flight). They live in the same rotting stump as these C. pennsylvanicus, and the two get along pretty amicably on the outside. They received a sugary treat from yours truly.

I forgot the memory card for my camcorder, and then broke the lens on my other camera the moment I reached into my bag. I was still able to get some decent shots by holding the lens together, and aiming the flash, and snapping the picture...

Wow! Amazing photography! That's some luck with those cameras.

Honestly, I've been waiting eagerly for your "lineup" for highlighting local diversity this year.

Thank you! Sadly, I don't think I'll be able to complete that project until some time around next year, although I will be spending my time this summer gathering footage and photographs (I may be able to feature some of the Autumn fliers, but we'll see.)

Oh well! Nevertheless, it doesn't change my excitement. :P
