Ant drinking maple syrup (pic)

Not too much of a story here...I put a drop of maple syrup out in the garden to try and coax ants to stop for a taste and pose for some photos for my blog. This was my favourite.

Unfortunately I have no idea what species it is...

Wow that's cool.

Looks like the ants we get in Texas... The ones that make big hills and hurt like you wouldn't believe. I hate those. They're nasty buggers.
My adventures in keeping Indostomus crocodilus, the crocodile toothpick fish. AKA armored stickleback, paradox fish, and freshwater pipefish. Care is (to the best of my knowledge) exactly the same as Indostomus paradoxus.
