This small 3mm ant was found in Rørvig, NWZ, Denmark inside a Formica ant nest. It's so small and can sneak around as the wood ants don't care or see them.

Ants were coming to the hole bearing what looked like a short piece of grass (but could have been seed?), but they were too fast to photograph.

This small slender, ringbum ant was found crawling through the leaf litter. I have edited my original size estimation which was too low. After relocating and re-measuring the ant it measures 7mm or just over. I got a few shots off before it disappeared. Will have another look for it tomorrow morning. Interesting one - cannot find it in the book.

This was the scene of a clean up job after a Pheidole massacre. There was no aggression here whatsoever. The Tetramoriums were wandering around picking up Pheidole body parts and even carrying body parts out of the Pheidole nest. The carnage was long over - and perpetrated by another - Dorylus raider ants which were long gone. A very few Dorylus heads and bodies can be seen. I've wanted to photograph some Dorylus ants for a while now but I just don't run across these nomadics - this is not quite what I had in mind!

Description

Global warming is certainly noticeable in many different ways, San Cristobal has always been cool to cold most of the year and one tiny benefit of that is......almost no ants! Since our area has begun to be much warmer in recent years, I am now noticing many more species of ants everywhere. This year for the first time I came across this very large ant. There were about 25 of them running about a cement garden entrance under a light. I saw them only at night and only for a few nights in May. It was impossible not to notice them because they were almost 1 cm long. This ant is strictly a liquid feeder as adults, feeding on plant sap and dead animal juices. It is one of the Carpenter Ants. Family Formicidae, Formicinae.
Found in the street and entrance to a gated house, semi-rural residential area, San Cristobal de Las Casas, Chiapas, Mexico 2,200 meters.
I am wondering if they might all have been queens, the dark bands on each side of the thorax look like wing scars. It is not supposed to be this far south, although the pine-oak-juniper habitat is to its liking.
