Friday Ant Blogging: Ants, Pupae and Larvae

(click the pics to enlarge)

Here are some pictures of ants that I photographed last July. I am not sure of the specific identification. There was a long trail of ants from the ground up to the deck and into this pot on the railing of the deck. In the top picture I have a close-up of the center of the pot where the drain hole is and the inset was taken further back for orientation. The same goes for the bottom pics, which are close-ups of the inset. You can see small adults along with pupae and larvae of the smaller adults. I guess the larger immature forms are a different caste or maybe just a different sex or both.
