Hi Mardon,

There is a group of us working on a Newfoundland insect book, we would love to use some of your pictures (with credit) including this one. (also the Carpenter queens, Formica rubicunda, and the Formica glacilis queen). If you are agreeable, please send me an email tomc@mun.ca

Tom

P.S. we would also like to use the image of Aedes japonicus, that we previously published with you in the Canadian Entomologist.
