I believe this Carpenter is a Camponotus ocreatus but I am awaiting a confirmation from Bugguide. Anyway, it was fairly large, and very slow moving, and all by itself. All the things I need as a photographer. I still struggle with lighting ants and their reflective surfaces, but I think I am getting better.

Nice work with a tough subject. I like the way you've captured the translucence of the body without undo reflections.
