Hello this is my first post to the forum and I found this little one on a walk a few days ago and I was wondering does this look like a queen? if so What species? The ruler is in inches not centimeters.

Can not tell if it is a queen. You need to get a closer pic. They make macro lenses that attach to phones for cheap. What time and day did you catch it, where did you catch it. :D
With all the things ants can do, you wonder, who rules the planet :?
