Caption

Black carpenter ant. Macrophotograph of a black carpenter ant (Camponotus pennsylvanicus) on a dandelion flower (Taraxacum sp.). Carpenter ants prefer to build their nests in damp wood, aiding nutrient cycling in forests, but sometimes also causing structural damage to houses. They are found throughout the world, feeding on insect honeydew, plant and fruit juices, and dead insects and other small invertebrates. Photographed in Michigan, USA, in spring. Magnification unknown.
