I have found a queen of a type of ant i watch all the time in the wild and finally came across one by complete chance. I was actually a little away from home and was sitting on a bench when i saw her on my leg luckily i had an empty coke bottle to get here home :lol:.
Anyways she is 7.5 mm long and was found in Florida (USA)

I can't see her well enough.
