Subject: I’ve been looking for a while, can figure this out
Geographic location of the bug: Chelsea Michigan
Time: 11:51 PM EDT
Found in sandy soil about 30 yards from a medium sized lake. A white pine forest surrounds this lake with the occasional clearing. I figure this is a queen of some sort, I’ve been looking around myself for a while. I can’t find a match.
