Flying Ant

I don’t know much about ants.  However I shot this ant after a couple days of rain around the last days of October.  These ants swarm down and they sort of have problems since their wings stick with rainwater.

Some research on the internet led me to believe this is their nuptial flight and its some ‘lifecycle’ process in their nature.  This was one of my first macro photographs and taken with available light.  I always liked how the ant sort of looks at me from that leaf and the beauty and detail of its body and wings.
