Ant, fuzzy red with black stripe - Dasymutilla occidentalis -
Louisville, KY, Jefferson County (Louisville) County, Kentucky, USA August 12, 2005 Size: One and a half inch
Was running rather quickly on the driveway, then went in the grass. When to fetch a container, could not find it again, but then spotted it (or a mate) again on my neighbor’s driveway. Released after photography in one of our flowerbeds.
