Black Carpenter Ant

I'm a black ant that is part of a very large family. I found this black Carpenter Ant foraging around the trash can as I was setting the trash out this afternoon. I've learned to keep an empty pill bottle in my pocket when I go outdoors for I never know what I may find.

I brought it in and staged it for a focus stacking session. I left the size #000 insect mounting pin (0.25mm) in it to illustrate how it was set up and to put a perspective to its size.

As I have often said, "What would a picnic be without them!"
