I got this queen from nurbs a while before, so they're NCC ;)

1 of the workers is a Camponotus maritimus worker, the other I believe should be the semitestaceus nanitic, but it hasn't darkened yet, and it bears a striking resemblance to Camponotus fragilis

Thanks <3

It was my first time trying it out, seems to work well, so many of my future posts will likely contain short clips

Update 6-2

scPAfTL.mp4

Two more workers closed, and it's crazy how light colored they are. I've seen some other journals and I would've thought they'd be darker than Camponotus semitestaceus. I've included a photo of my Camponotus fragilis for comparison here.

I also have another colony of C. semitestaceus, which currently has 2 workers, 1 sansabeanus worker and 1 semitestaceus worker. The sansabeanus worker is the one on the top left, the semitestaceus is directly below the queen. You can sort of see that the semitestaceus worker is slightly lighter colored than the sansabeanus worker. I'm not sure yet I will keep posting more of this second C. semitestaceus colony, but if you guys want to see them, lmk in comments :)

It could be because from the first link it appears to be a video rather than an image. I'm not 100% sure on how to embed videos from imgur on here, just images. Maybe you can try to Upload it to Youtube or something and embed that link on here. I know that works :D

The first and the third are both videos. I didn't publish them right on Imgur in the beginning. Embedding videos is pretty much the same thing as embedding images, but it just looks better to me.
