Man what photos! Pay attention, peopleā€”focal vignetting, contrast, perfectly centered lighting.

I also like that you're not giving them away. Very reasonable prices, considering the quality of specimens.

Thanks everyone. Was great meeting you guys too - I'm happy the ants found good homes and caretakers.

 

Solenoqueen - CA has a diverse range of ant species. Some can be found in the deserts and some high up in the mountains. Drew has a posting on this forum that has a listing of when and where certain species fly here in CA. You should check it out.
