Wow! Amazing ants. I am so jealous, as I've always wanted to keep Pogonomyrmex and Myrmecocystus, but they were never native to the places I lived. Great photos, Gregory!

Older picture of my first Myrmecocystus mimicus queen to get workers, along with a huge egg pile.

Ouch! Formica ravida worker defending her colony.

These massive Pogonomyrmex occidentalis mounds were found in Northern Arizona. I did break one open, but forgot to get pictures. The amount of brood and workers they had in there was crazy! Note the bare patch of land around their nests due to years of workers snatching up all seeds in the vicinity of the colony for food.
