Dude you’re very lucky that thing didn’t sting you. It’s known as the cow killer.

Dasymutilla occidentalis
Dasymutilla occidentalis? You were able to iD her without a clear view of her antennae or her gaster? Wow.

What time of day is the typical nuptial flight for Camponotus?
The males start coming out around midday and take to the air with the females sometime in the afternoon.

Re: Queen Ant ID La Center, Washington, USA

Looks like Camponotus[/i, probably nearcticus. Better lighting would help a lot though.

Re: Fungus-Growing Ants

A woody forest would be your best bet and that doesn't guarantee anything especially in Canada.

Has anyone observed Camponotus queens near Chicago area?
Not yet. Last year Camponotus Pennsylvanicus flew on 05/28/18 here in Chicago. They should fly around the same time again so, be on the lookout for them.
