I just got back from a trip, It rained a lot while I was gone. I found multiple ant nuptial flights. I decided to capture one down the road. Here are some pictures of the ant. She was moving around a lot so it was hard to get good pictures :roll: .If you need some more I would be happy to add them. I hope someone can identify her :D . I live in Michigan, US, and it is September.

That's a male of possibly in the Ponerinae subfamily.

Okay, I've gotten what I believe to be a Queen ant. Tell me if I'm wrong. I believe it has mated, it just started raining so I might go and catch another if there is another nuptial flight. I'm still not sure on the species. sorry about the quality of the camera its an iPhone 5. I'm in Michigan and it's September.

Definitely a queen, looks to be Lasius neoniger.

Hi again! I just found some more ants... I'm kind of getting a lot! :lol: I have them in some more test tubes. I'm pretty sure that queen #3 is another Lasius neoniger queen, but I'm not sure. I live in Michigan, US, if anyone can determine the species of these queen ants.

Try to put them on imgur.com and then put that link in here. It's also easier to group multiple pictures that way.
