Lisberg's Camponotus Herculeanus
I'm back in the ant-keeping game..!
Somehow all my Camponotus Barbaricus ants disappeared over a few weeks, and I'm still not sure how exactly.
But instead of buying some new ants, i chose to walk the nearby woods, and stumbled upon a VERY large ant, with beautiful wings. At first i thought it was a wasp, i flew really bad and reminded me of a drunk bumblebee in its movements.
Someone inhere wrote "Always keep a small container on you, it might be your lucky day"... it sure was.
I found my very first Camponotus queen, and in Denmark where i live, there are only two species. But rare, and the one is Camponotus Ligniperda, the other C. Herculeanus.
So far I've come to the conclusion that it is indeed C. Herculeanus.
Her is a picture of her, before she shed her wings:
