Silky Field Ant _ Formica subsericea - Formica subsericea

Silky Field Ant _ Formica subsericea - Formica subsericea
Valentine, Cherry County, Nebraska, USA
September 12, 2020
Found in a meadow beside the Minnechaduza Creek. Many leaves with identical ants and insect activity were scattered about the meadow. Perhaps the ants were feeding on honeydew from the smaller insects?
