Time to go
I found a swarm of flying ants preparing for take off and rushed indoors for the camera. The whole swarm flew off in just a few minutes (many of them into my long hair). I was fascinated to see how they struggled to balance as they climbed up grass and flower stalks in an attempt to find a better launch pad. I imagine it takes a while to get used to having wings...

This one had reached the very tip of the grass. no choice now, but to let go....
