Size: approx. 6mm
I stink as much at ID'ing ants as I do flies. I literally can't tell 'em apart. This big ape was tending some aphids on prunus whereas, normally, much smaller ants (we called them "sugar", or "honey-dew", ants back in the day) would be doing the honors. Was it just desperate for something to eat?
