Comments:
Found this dead ant in a jar of water I had dipped from a brook while looking for amphipods during the winter. It's hard to believe that this ant was actually in the brook. Perhaps it was in the empty jar before I dipped the jar in the brook. I was pretty certain that the jar was entirely empty but I find it hard to believe that a dead ant would be in the icy brook water in January. On the other hand, maybe the fast moving water eroded a bank upstream and washed a nest of hibernating ants into the brook. That may be possible too.
