Ant; eater

So this is me trying to get a good shot of an ant with my new camera, through a loupe.

Here it is without the loupe (just enlarged and cropped in iPhoto)

Through the loupe, then enlarged and cropped in iPhoto. You can see the two nodes on the petiole between the thorax and abdomen. These were critical (along with other field markings) in identifying this ant as Tetramorium sp., the pavement ant.

None for you Jockamo! Enjoy your blue ice treat instead.

I am impressed with the clarity of your ant photo. Furthermore, that is a handsome anteater. They look like Muppets to me.
