The black ant nests in the garden had an ant flying day the other day.

Some nests were releasing females

Wow great captures. Interesting difference in scale; I always thought the mating was completed in the air so great to see you caught them in the act so to speak.

Interestingly I did see some mating couples flying around - first time I'd noticed that.
