Nuptial Flight 07/13/09

This was for the hour of 6:00pm. I caught a Monomorium minimum queen of all things just moments ago. While poking my nose that low to the ground I also caught sight of an Aphaenogaster colony setting out alates for a nuptial flight. They didn't get very far as it's currently thundering outside. I admire their persistence though, becasue they were tolerating the rain far more than I could. I left them there. I'll have pictures later but now I have to turn off he computer. Bye.
