I took this picture on an ant on a golden grounsel flower that was sitting still.. When I enlarged the picture I see why.. It is tending aphids. Any idea what type this might be? it was about 3-5mm. I thought it might be a crazy ant but didn't look right where the gaster attached... Any ideas?
I think this is a winged ant, but I always need coaching on my Hymenopterans. Note the elbowed antennae and the size (8-9 mm).
