You could try a 3rd party service such as imgur, google, or twitter.

Re: Worker ID

I've found about 20 - 30 of them, (so there are probably twice that many) and they are all the exact same size. Don't Camponotus Pennsylvanicus usually start polymorphize after that many workers?

Closer to 1cm if it helps.

C.Pennsylvanicus are flying in SE Michigan
Saw about 15 alates taking of at a Putt Putt Golf course, seemed that they were all queens. A awesome experience for a novice ant keeper, the only one who was enjoying that more than me was the Birds😰
It was 80°F+ today and rained yesterday.
