These ants were swarming around on our sidewalk, so I put down a little bit of sugar water to try to get them to slow down for portraits.

This South American native, from the same region of that continent as the imported fire ant, is now well established in northern Florida and adjacent parts of neighboring states.
Nice images!

Please let me know if diagnostic characters are needed
as I may have other shots or can get other shots of members of this colony that might show them.
