This colony has 8 queens that seem to hide under large rocks and in the ground, hot sure if it is there nuptial flight at the moment but the queens have been up and about for the last few days. These ants where found in north Canterbury, New Zealand it is near the middle of spring. photo taken today at 12:00PM ish (27/10/2019). Image
