YsTheAnt's Camponotus hyatti Journal
These have been on my to-catch list this year, so I walked a block away at night and plucked some queens off a tree during a nuptial flight . They were all found sometime late March or early April, over the course of one or two weeks.
I currently have three queens, one queen with a reddish head, and two with black heads. One of the black head ones I have was caught in my pool, and it shed all but one of its wings. The other queen with a black head has two nanitics. The other queens all have pupae. For now, I will just include images of the one that has workers, and will update this when the others get their nanitics.
That is the one queen with two workers. The newer one is hiding under the queen, but you can see her antennae poking out.
