Flying Ants

I walked out onto the drive yesterday evening and into a crowd of winged ants. They were milling about on the ground, clambering over the rocky terrain of the crazy paving then taking off one by one and heading west. Something similar was going on the other day on the courts at Wimbledon and causing annoyance to the players. It's one of the things I love about insects- that they go about their business with absolutely no regard to our carryings-on. We are I suppose very largely invisible to them- and impinge on them- if at all- as shadowy, incomprehensible forces of nature...
