My encounter with Asian Marader Ants (Carebara Diversa)

Hello everyone,
Last spring I had the amazing opportunity to go over to South-East Asia with my family, to visit the area, and help out at an orphanage. It was an amazing experience and a great place (I know that there are some people on this forum from there and you are very lucky). Anyway, I was looking through my pictures and I saw some pictures that I thought I should post about.
I was lucky enough to find a mature, active colony of Asian Marader Ants (Carebara Diversa), attacking some food!
Here are the pictures of these beautiful creatures for your enjoyment:

For size reference, that yellow thing in the last picture is the leg of a plastic chair.

P.S. I would like to use the BBCode to have the picture on this post, is that possible with imgur? (That's what I'm using) If someone could help me out that'd be great.

Wow I love that species! So gorgeous and unique!
Proverbs 6:6-8

Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!
It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler,
yet it stores its provisions in summer
and gathers its food at harvest.

Keeping Tetramorium immigrans, Lasius Neoniger

If you see anything on the browser page other than just your image, then your link is not usable to be embeded. It has nothing to do with the image host (except Photobucket, which is trash). But, if you use tools like "view image" and "copy image location" (the exact wording is different depending on which browser you use) you can get the image URL. Look for the image file extension at the end of the link (i.e. dMds6PS.jpg)
