Large Imageclick to view
DescriptionOne of the Agorum species, but hard to tell which one.  This is a large individual about 20mm long and was having dispute with the red ants.  Neither was really harming the other, but the ants were clearly driving it off.  This is a 6 image stack when it stopped still for a few seconds, even at f8 the depth of field up close was far too small.  Unfortunately this is the only time it stopped long enough for a stack.
