Formica fellows

There are no ants in Cafe Twitch, my backdoor garden in North Yorks, but I did find a nest about a mile away, which was humming with activity.


These are probably Lasius Niger (common black ant). There were also much larger wood ants nearby (Formica lugubris?), with this one carrying off  an aphid.



In the nearby woods was Wild Garlic (in its final stage of flowering)

It’s that time of year!
