Drone Ant Fossil - Paleogene Period

This image shows what appears to be a drone ant fossil (see the wing). The fossil was found in the Florissant Formation of Teller County, Colorado, USA. It dates to the Eocene Epoch (56-33.9 million years ago) of the Paleogene Period (66-23 million years ago). Thanks to Kenny for this microscope image.
