These are my new ants only 2 weeks old their seems like a little bit of brood but they moved the brood when I moved the cover. There are about 8-10 workers and 3 queens they are doing quite well but are very dormant as it is winter but when I spray the come explore.Sorry about the photo quality there is bad light and my camera is not designed for that close.
In that photo those are just 1 of my queens This is the camera I am using.
That is an brilliant camera. What you probably need is a macro lens. I got a cheap auto-focus camera but it suffices for the moment until I can afford one of those SLR with changeable lenses and manual focus over-ride.

Ah, the good old Fuji Finepix5500. I have the bigger brother to this camera, and although there is a macro facility on both your camera and mine Caydenn, it can be difficult getting a good close up.
I find that lying down flat on your stomach and holding the camera with both your elbows firmly on the ground helps, as your arms then act like a tripod and give the camera more stability from the dreaded camera shake, which is what makes good shots often go out of focus. Alternatively use a tripod or monopod if possible
