Not an especially large ant...

Not an especially large ant, perhaps the size of a pencil eraser, Pogonomyrmex rugosusis a common species of desert harvester ant in and around Albuquerque.  Yesterday was a rare overcast day, making it perfect for taking photos like this with my cheap little point-and-shoot camera.  If you've bought a camera within the last few years, wait for a cloudy day, get real close, and take a picture.  The detail may surprise you.
