What do people like seeing of ants the most?

Example, a ant drinking nectar, a ant queen, the trails to food, a ant on a penny.
Why don’t more people like ants?
Is anyone from Wyoming who wants to sell ants?

You can email me about ants at Tucker.reynolds13@gmail.com

I have heard people say they like seeing ants doing trophallaxis.

There are so many fascinating ants right where you live!
I disagree with the keeping/buying of ants that aren't in your area.

Who would be interested in participating in this contest? Just wondering if people would actually be interested in this.
I am gonna be honest i don't think i would be able to take part in this. It is a very fun idea but i live in the middle of an overcrowded city so i don't have any parks or forests nearby
Also there are not alot of ant species here so the best i can get is black crazy ants or camponotus compressus
And i don't even have a good camera. Most of the ants here are small and difficult to capture
Ants I have-
camponotus compressus colony- the shadow warriors.
Pls just let me have a tetramorium colony

If you did a pic contest we all would probably have different ants.

I am interested though.

What is to stop someone taking a pic off the internet? Also I have only a few ant species at my home.
I think copy right laws should keep people from that, but I will put it in the rules anyway.
