This ant was approx 9 mm in length, even larger than Pogonomyrmex rugosus (photo 2), with whom it peacefully coexisted.

These little ants were attracted to tuna in a cup. They couldn't reach, so they moved a pine needle to the lip!

They were sitting on some vegetation in the creek. Didn't know about the ant at the time. Both kept their butts to me & refused to turn around. No way to get a face shot so settled for the fanny shot.

Three Rivers, Live Oak County, Texas

A large and seemingly longstanding Red Harvester Ant nest had a road network covering the entire disturbed but as yet undeveloped area next to the motel. We carefully respected their space and trails to avoid conflict. These images reflect the central entering and exit point of this particular nest. The third and fourth images show a winged male soldier ant next to the multitude of female worker ants (near the nest entrance). The winged male soldier ant is at least two to three times larger than the female worker ants.

Crematogaster laeviuscula

27 July 2019
Lewisville Lake Environmental Learning Area (LLELA)
Lewisville, Denton County, Texas

Between 50-100 of these tiny native red-and-black ants with heart-shaped abdomens were methodically dispatching the body of a recently deceased Superb Dog-day Cicada whose own body was still very much identifiable. The drama unfolded on the floor of the Cicada Trail. For a distribution map of this ant go to: www.antmaps.org: https://antmaps.org/?mode=species&species=Crematogaster.laeviuscula

Their range is the entire southern half of the Lower 48 (in the US) and northern Mexico with some central and southern areas of Mexico also being included in their range. This ant species is native to North America and the Western Hemisphere and they're most widely distributed in Texas, Arkansas, Alabama, and Florida.
