It's becuase Photobucket doesn't alow 3rd party hosting anymore. Use Imgur and use the direct link (like Photobucket) when you upload.

And don't forget to measure your ant, preferably in mm.

The first picture looks like a bug, but the second picture looks more like a queen. Could you get a clearer view?

THAT IS A VELLVET ANT OR MORE PRECISELY WINGLESS WASP JUST RELEAS IT FAR FROM YOUR
HOME IT HAS THE SECOND MOST PAINFUL STING AMONG ALL INSECTS

EVEN TODAY I COUGHT A VELLVET ANT ASSUMING IT FOR A QUEEN​

IT MIGHT LOOK VERY SIMILAR EVEN I HAVE COUGHT SOME THE DIFFRENCE IS IT HAS A LOT OF HAIRS AND ITS GASTER IS POINTY
