Please create your own post so that people will see it better and this person's post is devoted to their ID :)
Proverbs 6:6-8

Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!
It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler,
yet it stores its provisions in summer
and gathers its food at harvest.

Is green because I really can’t tell. If so then it could be Oecophylla Smaragradina. I hear they are having nuptial flight now.
An ants' strength can be rivaled by few animals compared to relative body size.

No Camponotus or Oecophylla are going to be less than 6mm long as queens.

His measurements seem off and unsure.
