Flying Ants

Flying ants have been abundant following the recent rain. Some of the larger ones may have been termites. My bedroom was invaded by copulating creeping crawlies. I stomped on as many as I could and swept them up. In the night, the squashed corpses which I had missed were disposed of by tiny golden-brown ants. It reminded me of Gulliver and the Lilliputians.

These are flying ants attracted to the lights outside a restaurant. Eating al fresco was impossible.

Here are the discarded ant wings with raindrops, on a pathway outside the clinic.
