    That ant mimic (“Not an ant!”) looks like the Bow-Legged Bug nymphs we have here in Florida! Maybe Hyalymenus sp. (Hemiptera: Alydidae)?

    Alex, thank you for the link! Pogolumina is just getting started – I am refining, correcting, and adding to the content daily. We’re having a spate of cold rainy weather in Washington state at the moment, but when it clears I will be experimenting some new lighting techniques, and video.

    David:

    You’ve been given some attention here, also.

    The anthropomorph in me immediately thought of the teaser trailer for The Ant Bully, where a distinctly non-hymenopteran insect is auditioning for a role as an ant:

    Casting director: “We need an ant.”
    Hopeful actor: “I can do ant!”
    Casting director: “A RED ant!”
    Hopeful actor: “I can do red, too!”
