Lasius neoniger tending aphids
 
Hey Everybody! 
 
Yesterday I got to see some Lasius workers tending aphids in the wild for the first time! 
Thank you MrILoveTheAnts for Identifying them for me as Lasius neoniger.
 
(Sorry about the shakiness, I'm still getting used to the macro lens)
 
I'm hoping to go back sometime this week and check them out, 
and I'll also get a good picture of the plants and the area.

You should try getting you hands on one of these little things, I find them very useful Mini Tripods , it will help with the shaky hand situation. 

 

Good pic's and vid.

I really do want one of them. I'm hoping to stumble across a cheap but sturdy one maybe at the dollar store. This plant stalk however was about four feet high so it wouldn't have helped. I could probably get a selfie stick and sort of use it as a mono-pod to stabilize my phone while I'm recording.
