Good shots
This is a great series of shots! Too bad I don't know Floridian Cyphos!

 
Thank You!
They are stunningly beautiful ants. They have kind of a prehistoric look to them don't they?

 
Attine appreciation day
Oh man, I will concur wholeheartedly about these ants. Dinosaurish indeed - they're wonderfully sculpted and possess attractive subtle patterns of flattened setae. Ants are such a pleasure to look at, so morphologically plastic and well selected for their niches. Attines/fungus growers have such a look to them. Again, nice shots! When I first saw these they struck me as Alex Wild images (http://myrmecos.net/north-american-ants/).
