About a week ago I set out a tray of rotting fruit hoping to get pictures of some Red Admirals and American Ladies during their migration north. Maybe the fruit isn't rotten enough because I haven't seen a single butterfly on the thing. Ants, however, seem to love the stuff.
A good example of size difference between Camponotus (bigger) and Formica (smaller).
A smaller Camponotus was also present and here one is tackling the leg to this great big C. castaneus major.
Smaller Camponotus (I haven't been able to ID yet,) on an orange.
The smaller Camponotus (left) next to the Formica (right).
Some Crematogaster working a cave cricket I probably stepped on the night before.
